On Saturday May 20, 2017 Opera Theater of Connecticut, now in its 32nd year, is presenting, on our mainstage in Clinton, CT, the innovative and exciting production of Romeo & Juliet, In Music and In Verse, a blending of scenes from the works of both Shakespeare and Gounod. The opera pieces will be sung in French; the scenes from the original Shakespeare play, that link the opera moments together, will be performed in English.
We are looking for a Romeo, Juliet and others –The Prince, Lord Capulet, Tybalt, and Mercutio –for short selected scenes from the play to be blended with Gounod’s opera. The singers have been cast.
For the actors, it will be a very short rehearsal period, Thursday May 18 and Friday May 19 from 6 to 10 PM and a 7PM performance on Saturday May 20—all in Clinton, CT.
The fee for the two leads is $150 and $100 for the others.
Auditions will be held on Wednesday, April 26, starting at 6pm, in Madison CT.
Please send your resume and head shot to, subject line, R&J auditions.
