Casting Call: Opera McGill seeks performers for Kurt Weill’s “Street Scene”

Audition date: September 4th | Performances: January 31st to February 2nd, 2020


Opera McGill is currently seeking performers for its fully staged production of Kurt Weill’s “Street Scene“, to be presented at the Ludger-Duvernay Hall of Monument National for three days on January 31st and February 1st and 2nd, 2020.

Premiered in 1946 and based on Elmer Rice’s Pulitzer-winning play by the same name, Kurt Weill’s “Street Scene” innovatively merged the genres of American musical theater and European opera, instantly becoming a beloved and unique American classic. In part a story of romance and a story of an affair escalating into tragedy, this highly demanding opera, both musically and dramatically, is brought to life by the singers of Opera McGill and the musicians of the MGSO under the direction of stage director Patrick Hansen and conductor Brian DeMaris.

McGill Opera will holding auditions for the roles of Mae and Dick on September 4th at 7:30pm. These roles require dance training and singers comfortable with belting. The company is reaching out to all McGill students who might be interested in auditioning for these roles. (It will be possible for students cast to receive course credits for performing one of these roles, but this is not mandatory.) Those auditioning might also be invited back for a dance call on September 5th from 7:00-9:00pm.
