DALLAS, MARCH 15, 2017 – The Dallas Opera announces a fantastic opportunity for actors (no singing required) to appear in its upcoming production of the grand Italian opera NORMA by Vincenzo Bellini. All supernumeraries will be paid a stipend and receive free tickets to a dress rehearsal of Norma.

The production opens on Friday, April 21 for five performances in the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center ending on May 7, 2017. Supernumeraries must be able to participate in all five performances, as well as a modified rehearsal schedule. 

Specifically, the company is seeking several men with “acting chops” to portray the following:

  • Roman Soldiers
  • Celtic Warriors
  • Druids

Also needed are young women to portray the roles of Priestesses requiring acting ability and grace as the role requires some movement including kneeling/rising.

The company is also casting children who look 4-6 years-old; ideally boys who look like twins. They will appear in several scenes and acting ability is required. 

Those wishing to participate can attend an open call on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at The Dallas Opera Rehearsal Center located adjacent to Fair Park (Follow to Gate 12) at 4301 S. Fitzhugh, Dallas, TX  75210 (parking lot entrance off Gaisford St.).
