House an Opera Singer!

Looking for a novel way to support Virginia Opera? If so, consider opening your home to one of our many talented opera singers and join the exclusive ranks of "Virginia Opera Housers!"

That's right, housing a mainstage artist helps Virginia Opera more than you can ever imagine.

If you have a spare bedroom you can share with an opera singer, we need your help! In return you will receive two (2) tickets to the current opera, an invitation to a special "thank you" party at the end of the season, and a listing in the opera's program book. Plus, being a houser is considered a tax deductible donation!

If you wish to help Virginia Opera in this most special way, or want to learn more, please call Vanya Foote at 757-627-9545 ext. 3332 or email vanya.foote@vaopera.org

SUPERNUMERARIES

Supernumeraries are people of all ages who share the stage with operatic artists. Supers act as 'extras' on the stage. Supers can play soldiers, townspeople, nuns, gypsies as well as many other important roles. A super's enthusiasm and cooperation is an important part of any operatic production.  

Virginia Opera offers supernumeraries a competitive honorarium. Transportation, lodging and per diem are provided as appropriate for the Richmond and Fairfax venues.
