AUDITIONS
Our shows are about the beauty and glory of great voices and music. Artists enjoy our limited and simple rehearsal process. We rehearse on-book, the Wednesday &
Thursday before our show. The rehearsals and the show, begin at 7PM. To audition,
propose via email ANY 3 different date/s and times to info@operabrooklyn.org. First-
time audition/application fee is $35. $30 for those who have auditioned for OCB. $20 if you have worked with us and want to audition. Singers are assigned roles often 6-12 months in advance. Since we encourage artists to take high-paying work, we have covers. Covers are only required to attend 1 rehearsal to note tempi, etc. Everyone sings coro parts. Auditions, rehearsals and shows are currently in upper Manhattan: 600 W 218th Street, 1G, NY, NY 10034. Bring a 1-page resume and 1-page repertoire list to the audition, no headshot. Read information on auditions. Maestro Meetze will play at no charge but feel free to use your own pianist.
