Somerset Opera has a policy of casting roles within the society if we can. But we run open auditions and welcome new members from Somerset and beyond, so please get in touch - we'd be delighted to hear you. For budding and seasoned professionals, we welcome your CVs but would only be able to pay more than basic expenses in exceptional circumstances. Our main opera production each year is invariably performed in full costume, with orchestra. If you are looking to perform a particular role in a friendly environment, whilst striving for the highest possible standard, please do get in touch. We can generally arrange accommodation for those travelling from distance.

When auditioning please bring a prepared piece to sing.
