Each opera rehearses twice: 7-10PM, Wednesday/Thursday before the Saturday show. Artists may accept or decline an entire package of assignments (chorus, cover lead/secondary roles), recruit audiences; arrive early, fully-prepared, find suitable replacement/s, if needed and provide emergency documentation if a replacement is needed.
Auditions are $35. PayPal me here. Email 3 possible dates and times for an audition. Bring a 1-page resume and 1-page repertoire list of 5 arias in contrasting styles and languages to the audition. Maestro Meetze will play piano for free or you bring a pianist. 600 W 218th Street, 1G, NY, NY 10034. No head shots, videos, recordings, phone calls. Artists work with us for pure fun and for the love of the mission, repertoire, simple process/requirements: the first rehearsal, we start with the largest numbers and work our way down to arias, allowing artists to leave early. The second rehearsal is our “Dress Rehearsal;” we run it from start to end, minus cuts. This is no pay – no fee – only gratis. All OCB shows are on Youtube: channel operabrooklyn1.
