SING WITH US
We are casting Sopranos, Mezzos, and Baritones for two shows for our 2021-22 season.
All performances and rehearsals will be in person in NYC.
November 3, 2021 - Showcase of New Chamber Vocal Music - a concert (not off-book or staged) of 5, 10-15 minutes chamber pieces.
May/June 2022 - Self Defined Circuits: the world premiere of a new opera, with live and fixed electronics. Stage direction by Michael Hofmann, music direction by Whitney George. A newly created sex robot tries to find out what it means to be a woman while trapped in a world created by her programmer, Pete, and his Siri-like virtual assistant, Cora. Inspired by the “Me Too” movement, the composer's own experiences in an abusive relationship during her formative years, and the works of Sci-Fi pioneers Isaac Asimov and Ursula Le Guin, this opera explores ideas of womanhood through the lens of an artificial intelligence discovering the world, desperate to find where she fits.
We are casting chorus roles for our opera - only sopranos and mezzos.

Fresh Squeezed Opera is an ensemble-based opera company focused on presenting new music with intimate and impactful productions. Eric Simpson of NY Classical Review states, “New York is rich in tiny upstart companies working to find ways to make opera engaging...FSO stands out among these for its impressive commitment to championing new works.” Our mission is to present genre-pushing new works of the highest caliber that explore the depths of operatic music. We believe that collaboration across disciplines, fields, and media pushes the genre of opera forward.
