Every year for the past 20 years MCTV has been asked to supply supernumeraries for Opera Australia. What’s a Supernumerary you ask? Well it’s really just a fancy name for a background extra or someone who does crowd scenes and minor singing roles.
The great thing about the Opera Australia work is that it often continues for the whole season of the production. So you might get regular work for auditions and then every night the production is on stage. Not only that, you get to tell your friends about how you have been on stage in an opera. I bet they wouldn’t have expected that.
This week we have 20 MCTV people auditioning for the latest Opera Australia production and we have our fingers and toes crossed for them.
