Constructive Feedback from Industry Experts
OPERA America’s Feedback Auditions program offers singers an opportunity to perform their audition repertoire and receive valuable feedback from a panel of industry professionals, including stage directors, coaches, management representatives and artistic directors. Panelists evaluate each singer’s entire package, including vocal performance, audition repertoire offered, written materials, visual presentation and preparation.

Feedback Auditions can help singers in a range of career stages, including those just beginning to navigate the audition process, those looking to improve their presentation and audition package and those who would like the experience of receiving face-to-face comments. Singers contemplating a change of fach or repertoire will also find this a safe and constructive atmosphere in which to experiment.

The auditions take place in the acoustically excellent Marc A. Scorca Hall at the National Opera Center, which is equipped to record each session. Each participant receives a high-definition digital video recording of their 20-minute audition, including the sung audition and verbal feedback given by the panel, for continued study. A pianist will be provided, or singers may bring their own.

Please note that OPERA America does not disclose the names of the panelists prior to the auditions, but previous panelists have included sopranos Martina Arroyo and Angela Meade; conductor Thomas Muraco; Jay Lesenger, former general and artistic director of Chautauqua Opera; Lawrence Edelson, producing artistic director of American Lyric Theater; Ken Benson, artist manager and consultant; and A. Scott Parry, stage director.
