Repertoire Needed

This is a list of specific needs for the theaters attending - HOWEVER - even if you don't specifically see roles that you sing, they are always looking for good singers for future productions - no matter if it is listed here or not.  


We have seen many times when people are offered roles that are NOT listed by the theaters or a need comes after the audition and the singer is hired.  You must offer the repertoire that shows you best and know that the theaters are looking constantly for GOOD ARTISTS and will find a way to hire the singers they like!

  • Aida (two productions)

  • Radames (two productions)

  • Agathe

The Metropolitan Opera has particular needs as their repertoire is so vast and they maintain double cover casts for all productions.  Therefore for the 18/19 season theye are looking for large covers and comprimario roles for titles in almost every era, language, and style. Of specific interest would be singers suitable for verismo repertoire, Verdi, and Mozart.

Any and all agencies attending are looking to find artists that they can represent worldwide and help grow a career either from the start or from the position of an established professional that needs future management.
