Supernumeraries (or “Supers”) are non-speaking and non-singing roles. Supernumeraries are crucial components of opera, somewhat like an “extra” in a movie. These are volunteer positions, and needs vary each season. If you are interested in being a Super in our future productions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
