Events : Casting Call For Roles For Cincinnati Opera's 2009 Spanish Season
Posted by admin on 2009/3/25 22:40:00 (1674 reads)

CINCINNATI—Cincinnati Opera announces an open casting call for supernumerary roles during the company’s 2009 Summer Festival, “Opera Goes to Spain”. An information and casting session is scheduled for Monday, April 13, at 7:00 p.m. in the Large Rehearsal Hall at Music Hall. Participants should enter Music Hall from the Central Parkway entrance.

Auditions will be held for the following:

·    The Marriage of Figaro:  1 boy and 1 girl both 6–8 years old

·    Don Carlo:  10–15 men various ages and 4 women various ages

·    Carmen: 10–15 men of various ages, 10–15 women various ages, and 4 children various ages

Supernumerary or “super” roles are non-singing roles, much like extras in film and television. All operas are performed in Music Hall with an average audience of 2,800 people. Supers will share the stage with internationally-renowned artists as well as have the opportunity to work with famous directors and conductors. Being a super involves approximately 10–15 rehearsals in the evenings or on weekends. No experience is necessary, and all super positions are filled on a voluntary basis.

No experience is required. Attending the casting call does not obligate you to participate. Interested individuals can attend the casting call simply to learn more about supernumerary opportunities. For more information, please visit or email

Led by the legendary Juan de Marcos González (of the Buena Vista Social Club), the powerhouse Afro-Cuban All Stars perform a variety of styles including classic son montuno, contemporary timba, swinging big band, Afro-Cuban jazz, and more. The exuberant 16-piece big band has sparked a worldwide infatuation with the diversity and vitality of Cuban culture. These stars will have you dancing in the aisles!

The performance in Cincinnati was fantastic. The band played classic Cuban tunes, as well as modern Salsa, and original compositions by Juan de Marcos, among them one dedicated to his wife.  While all the musicians were fantastic, the favorite of the audience was piano player, Ignacio "Nachito" Herrera, who mesmerized everybody with his virtuoso skills and his passion and sense of humor on the keyboard.


The after party was at Via Vite Restaurant on the Fountain Square, where the owner of the restaurant and the management showed a true Cincinnati-style hospitality to the band members!
