Sarasota Opera Announces Casting Call for a Non-Singing Role for Children in Madama Butterfly

RocketKids Article

Sarasota Opera is seeking several enthusiastic children to volunteer for a performance opportunity in Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini. The character of Madama Butterfly’s son Dolore can be played by either a girl or boy and is a non-singing role. The age of Dolore calls for a three-year-old but should be played by an older child who is smaller in size: less than about 3 ½ - 4 feet tall. The selected children should be able to stand or sit on stage and be comfortable being picked up by an adult who will be singing in an operatic voice. Multiple children will be selected for the role to accommodate the 10 total performances of Madama Butterfly between February 18th and March 24th, 2023. Rehearsals will begin on January 16th. There is some flexibility with scheduling and the selected performers will not be required to attend all rehearsals in their entirety. Those interested in this exciting performance opportunity should please contact Director of Artistic Administration, Marco Nisticò, at mnistico@sarasotaopera.org or call 941-366-8450 ext. 534 to schedule an appointment.
