California Artist Network

Opera Santa Barbara is seeking submissions from California based artists: singers, pianists, stage directors, conductors, and other professionals pursuing or interested in a career in opera production and administration. Artists can be considered for all available opportunities including mainstage productions or placement in our newly expanded Chrisman Studio Artist Program. It is a growing priority for Opera Santa Barbara to showcase locally and regionally based artists.

Please submit all inquiries and materials through our designated Google Form.

If you have any questions or problems with the form please email [email protected].

Supernumeraries (or “supers”) perform non-singing roles in our opera productions. Casting needs vary from production to production, but include people of all ages and types. Supers are required to attend rehearsals beginning about three weeks before the opening night of each production. If you are interested in the possibility of becoming a super, please email your resume or a summary of your stage experience to [email protected].
