MAINSTAGE REHEARSALS: 
Rehearsals are primarily scheduled 7-21 days prior to the performance. The scene shows usually have less rehearsal time than full operas.

EMERGING ARTIST PROGRAM: 
Role preparation program includes 10 hours of private coachings with one of our staff conductor/pianist/coaches in order to prepare a role. Each participant will be able to perform an aria from the opera for which they are preparing at the National Opera Center in our Emerging Artist Concert. Although there is no ticket requirement for this program, there is a fee to participate. If the role is from an opera that NY Lyric is performing this season, selected emerging artists may be offered to understudy or cover the role.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: 
Audition fee for LIVE audition or by RECORDING. Accompanist provided for LIVE audition. Ticket requirement (except for roles with SPECIAL auditions). No pay.

VERY IMPORTANT: 
All singers must audition LIVE or by RECORDING at least ONCE per season in order to be considered.
