Lyric Opera seeking ... non-singers!

Here’s a chance for even tone-deaf folks to get the chance to grace the stage at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Auditions are being held Thursday and Friday, Nov. 7 and 8 for non-singing roles in the upcoming production of Mozart’s “La clemenza di Tito.” But you better in great shape!

The Lyric is seeking eight physically-fit men, plus one cover, for non-speaking, non-singing stagework. Rehearsals will begin Feb. 7, with seven performances running March 5-23.

The choreography for this production will be extremely physically demanding and candidates must have an athletic build, plus be very fit, agile and flexible. The ability to learn choreographed movement quickly, accurately and with precision is a must. Men with martial arts experience and/or experience with sword technique would be very helpful. The same would be true for those having previous acting and stage experience.

If interested, candidates must pre-register by sending a resume and headshot to or call (312) 827-3576 before 5 p.m. Nov. 1. Walk-ins will not be seen at the auditions.
