General & EMERGING ARTIST
auditions 2023

Are you an opera or classically-trained music theatre performer based in Melbourne?  We'd love to hear and meet you at our upcoming General Auditions for established and emerging artists.

The Audition Panel will be led by Artistic Director Linda Thompson, with visiting US Stage Director Luke Leonard and members of ACOCo Creative Team.

We're looking for singers to work with us across projects for 2023 - 2024 - which will include a remount of our award-winning production of THE ENCHANTED PIG, and a 3-opera, 10-day Festival of Contemporary Opera and Song in Feb 2024.  Subject to individual artists' availability, we prefer to use a select group across multiple projects  - and looking for versatility, and openness to doing things 'differently'.

ACOCo is not a government-funded company - our company is kindly supported by philanthropy and hard-earned ticket income.  We pay minimum LPA rates on a project-by-project basis for staged and audience-facing projects.

If you have not worked for a major professional company in Australia (or elsewhere) in a principal role capacity, we suggest you audition for a RESIDENT EMERGING ARTIST position, which involves additional professional development input including stage craft, coaching and repertoire-building - as well as concert and special event performances across March 2023 - Feb 2024.

Our staged operas are performed in English. We leave the foreign-language, traditionally-presented repertoire to other companies - ACOCo believes in shaping opera and operatic music-theatre to fit our contemporary place and narrative, and the artists in our cohort.
