2021-2022 Season

It is time for AUDITIONS! The Opera Theatre of Yale College (OTYC) holds auditions for all three of its non-starter opera shows at once, so lucky for you, you only have to audition one time for the whole season (includes fall and spring semesters)! You will indicate when you sign up which of the shows you are interested in being cast in.

Auditions will be held THIS WEEK on Tuesday 9/7, Wednesday 9/8, and Thursday 9/9, with audition slots between 6:00-9:00pm on all three of those days. Location of in person auditions is to be announced in the coming days.

Sign up for a slot HERE!

Questions? What do I sing (a short song or aria)? Do I have to study music (no)? HERE are our audition guidelines:

And in case you need a refresher for what productions we will be this wonderful in-person (yay) season:

FALL: The baroque opera The Judgement of Paris by John Eccles. This setting comprises one of four of the same William Congreve libretto for a 1701 competition. Though in the original competition, Eccles' setting came in second, when the competition was restaged 1989, Eccles was declared the posthumous winner.

WINTER: Kamala Sankaram's The Infinite Energy of Ada Lovelace, alongside a lecture about computing in the arts. With a libretto by Rob Handel, this 45 minute chamber opera commissioned by Opera Ithaca considers the story of English mathematician and early computer scientist Ada Lovelace.

SPRING: Keep an eye out for details about our spring mainstage, typically the production that sees the largest cast and longest runtime, too! You won't want to miss it!

That's all! Please feel free to email nikhil.harle@yale.edu or max.hammond@yale.edu with any questions! SO excited to meet you all at auditions.

Cheers to a great season ahead of us!
