Auditions

Really Spicy Opera’s regular season audition notices are posted to YAP Tracker. During the current global pandemic, we are still recruiting soprano and mezzo singers for our Aria Institute and Quarantine Opera Scenes recording work.

    • Paid at $25/hour. Same-day electronic payment made via Paypal or Venmo.
    • Singers are provided with a score and a piano track, to use in recording a video of them singing to via smartphone.
    • No long-term commitment is required – this is all ad hoc, gig by gig.
    • To apply, send an email to spicyopera@gmail.com with Quarantine Singer in the subject, a performance resume, and a link to 1-2 recent recordings.

The RSO Street Team (On Hold: Summer 2020)

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! 

Cultivating drama that burns and music that sates.
