Become a Super (hero)!

We often seek non-singing performers (supernumeraries or supers) to join our ensemble. Supers perform a variety of roles, from soldiers to party guests, and get a chance to experience the opera from the stage. These are volunteer positions, but we offer complimentary parking and two complimentary tickets to the production. Submit an application to be a supernumerary here. 

Ensemble & Cultural Equity

Our work relies on being an ensemble, and our ensemble only thrives with diversity, equity, inclusion, and respect. We commit to actively confronting and dismantling white supremacy, patriarchy, and exclusion in our company, field, and community. We commit to being inclusive and strive every day to be an anti-racist organization. Learn more about our vision, mission and values here.
