Auditions

Really Spicy Opera’s regular season audition notices are posted to YAP Tracker. There are no current regular season audition notices. However, we are currently recruiting for:

The RSO Street Team

The Street Team provides live, busking-style music performances in Downtown Minneapolis under contract to the Downtown Improvement District and Hennepin Theatre Trust. This group does not rehearse – we show up and just perform Disney songs, musical theater classics, and American songbook with the odd G&S song thrown in. Gigs are typically 11-1 PM, 11:30-1:30 PM, or 5-7 PM, Tuesdays through Fridays.

    • Paid at $25/hour. Same-day electronic payment made via Paypal or Venmo.
    • No long-term commitment is required – this is all ad hoc, gig by gig. We’re happy to work with singers and pianists one day at a time, because when you’re getting paid to sightread Disney songs from a fakebook, the more the merrier.
    • To apply, send an email to spicyopera@gmail.com with Street Team Application in the subject and either a performance resume or 1-2 sentences saying some things that you’d love to sing. If you’ve worked for a company in town or gotten a degree in the performing arts, awesome – you’re in, come work with us!

    • Time Commitment:

      • A 4-hour time commitment (12-4 PM) on Sunday, 8/18 for the main workshop.
    • To apply, send an email to spicyopera@gmail.com with New Opera Workshop in the subject, a copy of your performing resume, and a brief note about your Saturday-Sunday availability.
