Seeking male and female singers for all vocal chorus ensemble positions (tenors, baritones, basses, lyric and coloratura sopranos, mezzos and contraltos) and to understudy the following:
20s: beautiful young singer. Soprano voice that combines elements of classical and pop singing. Sings G below middle C to high E
30s – 40s: high baritone or tenor (with a strong low range) with a contemporary sound. Able to sustain high G# with ease in full voice and high C# in falsetto. Looking for a truly dynamic actor with excellent acting and singing ability.
RAOUL, VICOMTE de CHAGNY:
20s – 30s: dashing, handsome young aristocratic man who falls in love with Christine. Contemporary high baritone/tenor (2 octave range from A flat to A flat).
MONSIEURS FIRMIN and ANDRE
FIRMAN is the hard money man – Baritone with high E/F. ANDRE is charming with artistic temperament – Baritone: high G with ease. 30s – 50ish; the managers of the Paris Opera House. Trying to be elegant, they are slightly befuddled and bumbling. Need good instincts for stylish comedy.
30s – 40s; the prima donna of The Paris Opera. A diva in every sense of the word. Coloratura soprano, to high E. Requires opera training.
Late 30s – early 50s; the Opera’s ballet mistress. An ominous, stern, forbidding figure. Mezzo soprano to high B flat with no discernible break between head and chest
Should convincingly play late teens to early 20s; A young, petite ballet dancer with a strong mezzo soprano to G. Needs strong classical dance technique and excellent pointe work
30s – 50s; the opera’s leading tenor, Italian operatic tenor, companion to Carlotta. Sings to high C. Requires opera training.
MIDDLE aged to elderly “character man”. The head flyman of the Opera Populaire. Bass baritone but required to sing to E.
Women should be sopranos (lyric or coloratura), mezzo sopranos, or contraltos, with strong legit musical theatre or opera voices; a range of character players
Men should be strong legit musical theatre or opera tenors, baritones, or basses. Two of the basses in the chorus must sing to low F; a range of character players
