Supernumerary & Lightwalker Application
Become a supernumerary or lightwalker at the Dallas Opera!
To apply, fill out the form below.
Supernumeraries are onstage extras — non-speaking, non-singing, and modestly paid, yet they fully participate in the onstage action, lend energy and power to the production, and help the singers give their very best performances. Learn more!
If you are applying to be a supernumerary, you must be available for rehearsals beginning 3–4 weeks before opening night, as well as for all performances (see schedule below). Rehearsals are usually scheduled from 7:30pm–10:30pm on weeknights and during the day and evening on Saturdays; there are no rehearsals on Sundays. Performances usually begin at 7:30pm; Sunday Matinees begin at 2:00pm.
Lightwalkers stand in for singers during preproduction to help train the lighting.
