The chorus consists of 46 professional singers and performs in most of our opera productions and concerts. Members of the chorus are regularly used for smaller solo parts and are occasionally given the opportunity to cover lead roles. We consider drama and movement to be important elements of the chorus’ work.

Qualifications required: higher education from music or opera academy or equivalent.  Our working languages are Swedish and English. Stage experience from musical theatre is considered a merit. 

Audition by personal invitation will take place on 25 March 2019. 

Selected candidates will receive detailed information about the audition procedure by 11 March 2019 at the latest.

For the audition we would like you to prepare:

  • One mandatory aria from memory. Download the notes here.
