Professional Actors are hired on an as needed basis (based on needs of production.) To inquire about professional acting opportunities with Arizona Opera, please contact Zackery Hayhurst, Director of Artistic Administration.
Supernumeraries are people of all ages who share the stage with professional operatic artists. Supernumeraries volunteer their time and act on the stage as non-speaking, "extras." Supers can play soldiers, townspeople, nuns, Gypsies, as well as many other important stage-filling roles. A Super's enthusiasm, cooperation, and general interest in theater, go a long way to making a good candidate for these opportunities! No professional experience required.
If you wish to apply for a Supernumerary position, please send resume and headshot to Zackery Hayhurst, Director of Artistic Administration.
