Opera del West is announcing auditions for its summer production of Handel’s Alcina.  We will be holding auditions at BU on the evenings of May 15, 19, 21, 22.  We have had a busy spring, as Brenda Huggins, our stage director for the last 3 years has moved on to a job at Opera America in NY.  I’m excited announce that we will continue our journey with Rebecca Miller, an experienced director who has been working for NEMPAC over the last two years, staging La Cenerentola and Fidelio.

Please send a resume to to be considered for an audition slot.  We cannot guarantee a particular date, but let us know if you have a non-movable conflict.  If you are granted an audition, be prepared to bring two contrasting arias, one from the Baroque style. (This can be from an oratorio, but must be memorized).  You will need a resume and a headshot.

Performances will be on August 11 and 13 at the Center for Arts in Natick.  Rehearsals will begin the week of July 17 and will take place in the Boston area.  Tech week rehearsals will take place in Natick.
