Hey, Gym-Rat Male Music Fans With Abs, the SF Opera Wants You!

Posted By on Fri, Nov 12, 2010 at 1:17 PM


Sculpted abs aren't a terribly common trait among opera stars (big bones mean big lungs mean big voices) -- or music nerds, for that matter -- which might explain why SF Opera is holding an open call for gym-rat males to fill paid stage parts in a production next year. The organization is particularly looking for those with talents in "push-ups, pull-ups, body strength, endurance, hand-over-hand, staged combat, and full-body control," according to a press release.

We don't know what, like, half of that stuff is, but we'll try to explain it more after the jump.

To get the part, you have to be 18 or older, have to be between 5-foot-11 and 6-foot-2, and you have to be able to rehearse 30 hours a week for about a month next year. You also have to be seriously fit:

You don't need to be a Navy Seal, but we're looking for something close. This opportunity is the chance of a lifetime for ten talented men who will have the chance to show off their physical prowess to a crowd of thousands and to work alongside some of the most prominent names in opera and theater.

No word yet on what production these 10 beautiful specimens will be showing off their prowess in. But if this sort of thing interests you, and you've got the guns to make it, auditions are being held the afternoon of December 4. More details here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
