Calling All Ring Rookies!Hmmm, "don't consider yourself a total opera geek" rules me out,
Seattle Opera Wants YOU!
If you are between the ages of 18-30, know a little bit about opera but don’t consider yourself a total opera geek, and have never before seen Wagner’s Ring cycle, then Seattle Opera wants YOU! This summer, Seattle Opera is creating a new video series chronicling the “Confessions of a First-time Operagoer,” and we’re seeking a young adult to star as the host. The selected host will experience Seattle Opera from the inside out, participating in exclusive backstage tours and events and conversations with the artists, crew, and General Director Speight Jenkins, all of which culminates in attending the Mt. Everest of all operas: Richard Wagner’s Ring cycle. If you want an amazing opportunity to peek behind the scenes, meet the cast and crew that make opera happen, and ultimately star in a video series recording your experiences along the way, then apply today!
There's a live casting call, starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 15, in McCaw Hall. More details on the whole project at the Confessions web page. Be there or be square? Seriously, this could be pretty funny. I just wish they'd let me take a peek back stage at the Ring.
