Madison Opera is holding auditions on Tuesday, Dec. 6th in the evening; and Saturday Dec. 10th afternoon/evening. Auditions are for artists in the Upper Midwest/Chicago region, to be considered for principal and supporting roles in future seasons.

To be considered for an audition, please e-mail your resume, headshot, and preferred audition date to Salvatore Vasta - Artistic Manager,  You will be contacted to schedule an audition time, if appropriate.

Singers should have prepared a standard 5 audition arias of varying styles and languages. Singers should make sure the arias show off their voice, and not only bring pieces from operas we are considering in 2017/18, as we also listen for casting opportunities for future seasons. 

Note:  These auditions are for principal roles only; studio artists and chorus auditions will be held at a later date.



Chorus auditions have concluded. They are normally held in the Summer. Check back in June 2017 for the next audition.

Please note: The Madison Opera Chorus rehearses regularly beginning approximately six weeks before a production opens. Chorus members receive an honorarium for their participation.


Studio Artist auditions have concluded. They are normally held in the Spring. Check back in March 2017 for the next audition.
