I would be interested in working with Birmingham Opera Company as a singer. How should I apply?
Graham Vick works with Sarah Playfair, our Casting Consultant to identify singers who we then invite to audition for specific roles. Unfortunately we no longer have the resources to hold general auditions. However, you can send us your CV, photo and a covering letter at any time and we will keep your details on file and get in touch if we think you might be suitable for something.
I would be interested in doing a work placement with Birmingham Opera Company. How should I apply?
Occasionally we offer work placements to people mainly on the administration side of the company. As a small team it is often not possible to meet all the requests we receive. By all means, however, get in touch if you would like to do a work placement or internship with us - we will consider your request.
I am doing some research and would like to know more about Birmingham Opera Company. Is it possible to come and watch rehearsals?
Unfortunately our rehearsals are normally closed to people not involved in the production but we do sometimes open rehearsals to the public. Keep an eye on the Latest News section or Join Our Mailing List for information about open rehearsals and Masterclasses. There's a lot of information available on this website, particularly about Past Projects. If you need more information we will try and help you where possible if you write to us at our address on the Contacts page.
I would like to use one of your orchestral versions for a production. Are they available for hire?
There is a list of materials available for hire in the Library Section of the website.
Do you hold education workshops?
We don't have a separate education department - education is at the centre of the production work of the company. Our work is primarily aimed at adults 16+, both as participants and audience members. The education work occurs in the rehearsal process and in performances. As a result we don't currently have a programme of workshops available for schools.
