Malmö Opera is the leading opera in southern Sweden and plays around 260 shows and concerts every season from classical operas to musicals.

Malmö Opera is seeking to appoint two positions to the Opera Chorus, a full-time ensemble of 36 singers. The positions are – one each – for the voice types below:

  • Tenor 1
  • Tenor 2

All positions are permanent with a probation year during season 2019/20, and with possibility to start earlier upon agreement.

Requirements: Higher education at an Academy of Music, Conservatory, or equivalent, or professional experience as a singer/chorister in opera or music theatre. Experience in musicals is welcomed, as the opera chorus sometimes takes part in our musical productions.

Audition and a possible callback will take place upon personal invitation from 19th–21st September 2018 in Malmö.

You must be prepared to sing one compulsory aria and two arias of your own choice, of which one can also be an art song.
