Indianapolis Opera Holds Auditions for General Opera Chorus & Spirits in 'The Magic Flute'


Indianapolis Opera will hold auditions for the general opera chorus and 3 spirits in The Magic Flute on January 27-28, 2023.

Please submit by email the items listed below to be considered for auditions. Central Indiana residents are given preference due to travel requirements.

Materials must be received by January 23, 2023.

​Consideration for auditions will begin as soon as complete applications are received, so it is to your advantage to apply sooner rather than later. If granted an audition, you will be notified no later than January 15, 2023.

Complete applications contain all of the following items:

  • A completed audition application form.
  • Performance Resume with color or black-and-white headshot (on the resume)
  • SINGERS: If granted an audition the fee for Mainstage and Resident Artists will be $20, payable via Paypal.

Please do not send any additional materials beyond those specified above. Please email all materials to: Lyndsay Moy, Education & Community Engagement Director at


1. On the day of the audition please enter the Basile Opera Center through the entrance to the North side of the building; all other entrances will not be accessible by visiting singers.
2. Free onsite parking is open to all applicants during their audition period.
3. The auditions will take place in the Reilly Hall rehearsal room.
4. Please arrive only 15-30 minutes ahead of your scheduled time slot. Upon arriving, artists will be expected to fill out a handwritten audition repertoire list for the panel’s use during their audition.
5. There will be warm-up rooms with pianos, as well as water and changing rooms available for your use.
6. Chorus auditions should offer two song selections – preferably one in English, one in another language.
7. Applicants will be performing for a panel consisting of IO General Director David Craig Starkey, Principal Guest Conductor Alfred Savia, Education & Community Engagement Coordinator Lyndsay Moy, and other artistic staff.
8. Upon completing their performance, singers will receive direct feedback regarding their audition.
9. If an artist receives an audition slot but is unable to attend on any of the scheduled audition days, the non-refundable fee can secure a subsequent audition time slot during the following audition session. There are a limited number of time slots available during each session. Auditions are based on availability and casting needs for upcoming productions. This application does not guarantee you an audition, but applicants will be notified of their invitation status, either way.
