WELCOME TO First Coast Opera!


First Coast Opera seeks Singers

First Coast Opera in Saint Augustine, Florida, announces auditions for singers on Friday, November 7, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, and on Saturday, November 8, from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM.  Auditions will be held at the Limelight Theatre, 11 Old Mission Avenue in Saint Augustine.

Singers are sought for a fully-staged, professional production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, which will be performed in Italian at Lewis Auditorium on the campus of Flagler College on January 9, 2015.  Singers are also sought for a May 2015 Concert and for other future projects.  Singers of all levels for all roles* and chorus are encouraged to audition.


Auditioners should be prepared to sing one or two selections.  A pianist will be provided.  Singers must provide sheet music for the pianist.  There is no cost to audition.


To schedule an audition time, contact Curtis Tucker, Artistic Director, by email to, indicating your preferred audition day.  Singers not scheduled in advance will be heard on a space-available basis.



*Roles may be filled outside of these auditions.

In this concert, we meet many characters from opera and musical theater as they introduce themselves through song.  Often, the “introduction aria” is the first thing they sing in the show and establishes that they are a central and important character in the story.  “Getting to Know You,” which borrows its title from the familiar song from The King and I, will include selections from Carmen, The Elixir of Love, The Magic Flute, Carousel, Man of La Mancha, and Showboat, as well as works of Gilbert and Sullivan and more contemporary musicals and operas.  Four featured singers will include both new and returning artists to First Coast Opera, including soprano Emma Jean Cardiff, mezzo soprano Regina Torres, tenor Erick Crow, and baritone John Dooley, accompanied by pianist Curtis Powell.  The concert also provides an opportunity for new Artistic Director Curtis Tucker to talk directly with the audience, as he serves as emcee throughout the program.
