Verismo Opera has several opportunities for children, teens and adults to perform important non-singing, non-speaking roles in the company’s upcoming dramatic production of "Cavalleria Rusticana," a double bill with "Suor Angelica," on October 20 at 3 p.m. at the Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood.
The theatre company is seeking actors of all ages to assume various roles as villagers. Girls are especially needed to appear in the procession. No prior stage experience is required, according to a Verismo representative.
Supernumeraries will work closely with the production’s director, Giovanni Simone. The opera will be fully staged and performed with a full cast in costume accompanied by an orchestra under the baton of internationally renowned principal conductor and music director, Anthony Morss. The Verismo Opera Chorus will perform under Chorus Director Mara Waldman.
