2022-2023 Season Auditions

Chicago Fringe Opera is looking for performers and collaborators of all voice types for its 2022-2023 season! The season will include a workshop of an operatic world premiere (see details below), as well as numerous other events throughout the season.

Though we accept submissions year-round,  the deadline to be considered for our Fall production is July 22nd , and it will be cast on a rolling basis, so early applications will be prioritized.

A Note About Videos: Though we prefer live auditions, due to Covid-19, we have chosen to do auditions online this season. Unfortunately, we recognize that recording opportunities can be rare and/or expensive, creating barriers for some. If you do not have a video of your work in the preferred repertoire, please feel free to send us whatever recent video you have or (if even that poses difficulty) please reach out and let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Are you an artist based in Chicago? Interested in working with Chicago Fringe Opera (CFO)? Have a big idea you’d like to share? Or you just want to chat about your art form and its intersection with opera?

The CFO family invite you to share yourself and your work with us. We accept submissions from artists in all disciplines, not just opera, and not just the performing arts.

Submissions are reviewed at the beginning of each month. We’ll be in touch via email to connect you with a member of our artistic team who will schedule an informal meeting.
