Pittsburgh Opera holds auditions for principal roles, chorus, orchestra, supernumeraries, and the Pittsburgh Opera’s Resident Artist Training Program on a regular basis.

Principal Roles

Pittsburgh Opera conducts general auditions every December in New York City and by appointment in Pittsburgh. These auditions are not associated with any future repertoire but are for general purposes only.

To be considered for an audition, please send a cover letter, resume, photo and/or recording to: William J. Powers, Director of Administration and Artistic Operations, Pittsburgh Opera, 2425 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222 or by e-mail.

We regret that we are not able to audition all who submit materials and only selected applicants will be contacted for auditions. Applications are accepted from both represented and non-represented singers.


Pittsburgh Opera holds Super auditions throughout the course of the season, depending on the needs of each individual production. Please check this website or our Facebook page or Twitter feed for updates.
