What's a Super? Want to be One?

Supers, short for supernumeraries, are the non singing "extras" that Sarasota Opera uses in its productions. This upcoming winter season Sarasota Opera needs male and female supers to play the roles of couriers, nuns, soldiers, cardinals and priests. If you are interested in volunteering your time as a super, you should attend the Super Call, Thursday, October 29 at 1 p.m. (Gather in the Opera House Courtyard). Your attendance at the Call doesn't guarantee that you'll be a super. Directors of our productions will interview applicants and members of the costume shop staff will be taking measurements to see if they have a costume that will fit.
Being a super requires both day and night-time availability.
Sarasota Opera House is at 61 N. Pineapple Ave., Sarasota. If you have any questions, call Sarasota Opera's Artistic Administrator, Greg Trupiano, at (941) 366-8450, ext. 420, or email him at
