Sopranos for the Women’s Chorus

Sopranos for the Women’s Chorus

Deadline for applications 29 Februari 2020

Auditions by invitation 29 March 2020

The Göteborg Opera Chorus consists of 46 professional singers and performs in most of our opera productions as well as concerts. Chorus members 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.

We wish to employ two soprano singers for the Women’s Chorus. One position is for the Soprano 1 section and will require strength in the higher register, the other position will be in the Soprano 2 section and will require strength in the middle register. Both positions are permanent contracts and starts with a probationary year from 1 July 2020.

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. Auditions, by personal invitation, will take place on 29 March 2020. During day 1 (29 March) a selection process will be done, and some candidates will proceed to day 2 of the audition (30 March). Selected candidates will receive detailed information about the audition, and the audition procedure by 15 March at the latest.

For the audition we would like you to prepare:

Day 1:

  • One aria of your choice, performed from memory.

Day 2:

  • One Mozart-aria, performed from memory.
  • One aria of your choice, performed from memory. May be the same aria as day 1.
