Audition for Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin as a Principal/Professional singer
Auditions are hereby announced for Opera South East's production of Eugene Onegin for performances on Fri 20 April and Sat 21 April 2018.
The auditions will be held on Sunday 8th October 2017. Please indicate your interest here on the form below and our chairman, John Rycroft, will be informed immediately on submission of this form.
Priority for Principal roles casting will be from applicants within the OSE Company where casting is suitable, but many principal roles will be offered outside the Company through audition selection. If selected for audition, please sing an aria of your choice in English, preferably by Tchaikovsky though not necessarily from Eugene Onegin. The closing date for audition applications is Wednesday 27th September 2017; you will be advised of your audition time by Tuesday 3rd October. Please apply on this form below...
Chorus applications will not be auditioned on this date - simply submit your details on the chorus application form at any time and join our rehearsals from November 2017, and we'll try each other out from there.
Watch above this line once you hit [submit] to an audition application for any error messages or a confirmation!
Principal Fee/expense schedule for Eugene Onegin
OSE does pay a small fee and limited expenses for main principal roles. Show-week accommodation with company members can normally be arranged. Feel free to ask for details in the notes on your application.
Our last few productions were just great! See the NODA write-ups (National Operatic and Dramatic Association). In July 2015, OSE received a regional award in the NODA South-East Awards for Excellence 2014 - for Musical Excellence in OSE's production of Carmen
