Peabody Needs Dogs (and Humans) to Audition for Its Next Opera

Share the News


Does your dog have what it takes to be an opera star? More specifically — is he or she a small, mixed-breed dog who isn’t afraid of a little singing? If so, let your pet know about the upcoming auditions for Street Scenean opera being staged at the Lyric by Peabody this November.

The Langston Hughes/Kurt Weill opera will take place November 13 and 15. There are a number of non-canine roles up for grabs, including a beat cop, a doctor, an ambulance driver, a city marshal, and a violin pupil. No stage or singing experience is necessary, but a strong, resonant speaking voice is preferred, according to Peabody. There are also a number of small singing roles available for children. The dog part is “non-speaking.”

Auditions are scheduled for this Saturday in Goodwin Hall on the Peabody campus in Mount Vernon; to reserve a spot, email [email protected] or call 443-496-2472.
