Dayton Opera Auditions – Amahl and the Night Visitors

Calling all aspiring young actors—Dayton Opera announces auditions for children’s roles in its 2022 production of “Amahl and the Night Visitors.” Auditions will be held on Saturday, October 1, 2022, in the morning at Studio A in the Metropolitan Arts Center in downtown Dayton.


Two children with unchanged voices for the roles of Amahl and the Page’s Apprentice. Children should be between 9-13 years of age and be able to act and project their voices. Following the composer’s wishes, preference will be given to boy sopranos for the role of Amahl. The child cast as Page’s Apprentice (a non-singing role) will also understudy the role of Amahl. The Page’s Apprentice is a gender-neutral role. These are paid positions. All ethnicities and backgrounds are encouraged to audition.


Rehearsals begin Saturday, November 19, 2022, and continue through Wednesday, November 30, 2022. November 23-25 will be days off in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Performances will be held Friday, December 2, 2022, and Saturday, December 3, 2022. All rehearsals and performances will be held at the Schuster Center in downtown Dayton.


Please prepare one English-language music selection of your choice, which should be memorized. You will also be asked to sing Amahl’s aria“Don’t Cry, Mother Dear.” Music may be used for this. An excellent accompanist will be provided for the audition, although you may bring your own accompanist if you wish.


Please send an email to Matt Wilshire indicating that you’d like to schedule an audition. Please include your availability.
