Principal Auditions

The Asheville Lyric Opera invites all aspiring and established opera singers to audition for principal roles, secondary roles, and/or chorus positions for the 2017 upcoming season.

We had a successful Fall Audition and wish to thank everyone for their participation, especially our volunteers for organizing and First Baptist of Asheville, our gracious host.

Our audition process has changed due to our growth and new possibilities. Everyone must audition to be considered for our productions. If you missed our fall auditions please send in your Audition form by April 2, 2017 to be considered for our Spring auditions.

Check back with this site for exact dates.

2017 Repertoire Under Consideration: (Subject to Change)
Cavalleria Rusticana
Fiddler on the Roof


These auditions for principal roles require mailed submission of the appropriate materials (cover letter, $30 application fee, resume, bio, head shot, & Audition Request Form) to the Lyric Opera office. If your qualifications fit our specific needs per season, we will call you to set up an audition time.

Spring 2017 Auditions: May


We encourage you to send in your audition application materials as early as possible since audition space is limited.  Applications received by our office after the posted deadline will not be considered.
