In October, the Dallas Opera will unveil its latest world premiere, Great Scott, from out composer Jake Heggie and librettist Terrence McNally. The opera, set in Texas, revolved around a football team, and the creatives at the DO are in need of some men who can dance and look athletic at the same time. “For the four male dancers, The Dallas Opera is seeking candidates with strength, athleticism and the ability to convey a well-defined stage character.” Performers selected will be compensated for rehearsal time, and receive a performance fee. And they even get to appear onstage along with acclaimed mezzo Joyce DiDonato.
To schedule an audition (which will take place at the opera’s facility at Fair Park on Sunday, Sept. 27, from 2–5:30 p.m.), email your resume to Ahne.Schield@dallasopera.org.
