3rd Annual Baroque Casting Auditions Karlsruhe

21 - 22 February 2020
Staatstheater Karlsruhe
Fee: USD350

We return to Karlsruhe during the world-famous Handel Festival to offer opportunities to artists who specialize in Baroque repertoire. The auditions created over 25 contracts over the last two years and we hope for MANY MORE this year.


The auditions will be attended by theaters, festivals, orchestras, ensembles and agencies who specialize in the Baroque repertoire.


It is simply THE BEST way to be heard for people who wish to be offered contracts for Baroque performance.

PLEASE NOTE: This year the space made available during the festival is extremely limited so the auditions will be restricted to only the spaces online - there will be NO MORE SPACES ADDED.
