    For the spectacular arena production of the opera AIDA by Giuseppe Verdi, the “Hanseatic Symphonic Orchestra & Choir” is looking for singers who are true multi-talents.

    Under the direction of Rian van Holland and the musical direction of Michael Ellis Ingram, we will bring the world-famous opera to large audiences in 2023 and 2024. Performed in arenas using monumental sets and designs, we offer a unique experience which brings the event of an opera to new dimensions.

    Central to this production is the collaboration of the cast: choir, dancers and ensemble are part of the overall performance - there are no longer any clear boundaries. We are therefore looking for singers who not only excel in singing, but also show stage presence in dance and acting.

    • ▪  Dance and acting experience desired

    • ▪  Reliability, ability to work in a team
