OPERA PRODUCTION | Opera singers and a pianist

2024-2025 Season : La Voix humaine, Poulenc, and Histoires naturelles, Ravel

CALL FOR AUDITION (closed)

We are looking for opera singers and a pianist for our opera tour for the 2024–2025 season.

The opera chosen for the 2024-2025 season is Francis Poulenc’s La voix humaine. It will be preceded by a lively recital of French melodies, including Maurice Ravel’s Histoires naturelles cycle.

The artists will participate in the Festival d’opéra de Québec, partner of our opera production, and will tour throughout Quebec and the Maritime provinces with a small technical crew. A production internship of approximately 4 weeks is planned as part of the Festival d’opéra de Québec in the summer of 2024. The tour then requires that you be available for a period of 5 to 6 consecutive weeks in the fall of 2024, which includes rehearsals.

This will give you the opportunity to experience different venues while discovering the country. All the logistics of the tour are taken care of by JM Canada.

Send your application and go on tour!
