Lucine Amara & Verismo Opera Are Doing Open Auditions For a New ‘Tosca’

(Credit: Facebook) Lucine Amara is looking for a new cast of "Tosca" for Verismo Opera.

Want to perform in a production of Puccini’s “Tosca?” Well, Verismo Opera is giving you the chance to do just that as the company’s Artistic Director Lucine Amara is inviting soloists in all vocal categories to audition for solo roles in the company’s upcoming production.

Per a press release, the auditions will take place on Tuesday, June 13 and Thursday, June 15 between 6:30 p.m. EDT and 10 p.m. at the Megremis Studio in Epic Building in New York City. The roles of Tosca, Cavaradossi, Scarpia, Angelotti, the Sacristan, Spoletta, Sciarrone, a jailer and a Shepherd boy are all available. Applicants must submit the specified requirements by June 6.

Those selected will be showcased in the Oct. 15, 2017, performance of the production.

“Verismo Opera welcomes amateur, professional and retired vocalists of all ages to audition.  It’s all about great singing!  Many roles require a more mature artist.  This is also a great opportunity for any promising, young artist to prepare for a role in a professional setting before being engaged by a major opera company,”  Amara stated.
