ABOUT PETITE OPERA
Petite Opera Productions is a professional company that produces professional-quality opera, operetta, spooferetta and musical theatre. The company specializes in comic and lighter works, performs works only in English, and is committed to introducing new patrons to acoustical live stage productions. The company casts complete performers—classically-trained vocalists who provide complete characterizations and dance/move well—and volunteer chorus, orchestra and dancers from the community. Each production runs for 6 or more performances in an intimate, acoustic-friendly space (200 seats) without the use of microphones. The company takes a cross-over approach to all of the genre performed.
*Please note that Petite Opera does not provide housing, transportation, or transportation reimbursement for performers. Performers must be local Chicago-area candidates or those that can provide their own housing and transportation (to the northwestern suburb of Park Ridge) for the rehearsal period, which occurs up to three days per week and is spread out over a 12-14 week period (due to venue access).
