We will inform of a new audition date to come in 2021

The chorus consists of 46 professional singers and performs in most of our opera productions as well as concerts. Members of the chorus are regularly used for 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.

The Göteborg Opera wish to employ four singers for the baritone/bass section, in the opera chorus. All four positions are permanent contracts and start with a probationary year on the 1st of July 2021.

On day 1 (15 November), a selection process will be done, and some candidates will proceed to day 2 of the audition (16 November). Selected candidates will receive detailed information about the audition, and the audition procedure by 15 October 2020, at the latest.
