World premiere of a new opera by Jillian Flexner, words by Orlando Segarra. Stage Direction by Be Goodwin, Music Direction by Whitney George
Newly created, a 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" device, Cora. Inspired in part by the true story of a man creating a Scarlett Johansson robot, and the composer's own experiences in an abusive relationship during her formative years, this opera explores the idea of "womanhood" through the lens of someone new to the world, struggling in a world created by man.
We are selecting three singers for three parts: Pete, baritone; Cora I, soprano; Cora II, mezzo soprano. Note: Cora is one character sung by two vocalists. This is a fully staged production. Compensation between $250 - 400.

Additionally, we ask that each vocalist bring an optional $10 donation to help cover the costs of a pianist. All auditions will be held September 10
