Get Involved

Without the dedication and perseverance of outstanding volunteers and support groups, our productions would not be as beautiful, our bottom line would not be as sound, and our sense of community would not be as strong. For these, and many other reasons, we extend a heartfelt thank you to the following organizations. We invite you to get involved and become a volunteer or member of one of our support groups.

Opera Omaha Guild

The Opera Omaha Guild is a group of men and women dedicated to supporting the Company with fundraising and opera education efforts. Members plan and promote events such as Cotillion (etiquette classes for area sixth graders), social luncheons, educational outreach activities and the award-winning Spirits of the Opera event.

Craftsmans’ Guild

Integral to Opera Omaha’s success since 1962, the Craftsmans’ Guild members donate stagecraft skills in the areas of wardrobe, makeup/wigs, concessions and parties. Focused on meeting the backstage needs of guest artists and the production, members enjoy the camaraderie and reward of helping to bring top notch performances to the Omaha community.

Opera Omaha Chorus

The Opera Omaha Chorus comprises of professional singers from Omaha, Lincoln and the surrounding communities.

Auditions are scheduled at various times throughout the year and will be posted on the website. Singers are asked to prepare 2 vocal selections, one in a foreign language, not to exceed a total of 5 minutes. Arias, art songs, or church solos are all acceptable audition selections. Please provide printed music as an accompanist will be available at no cost. A performance résumé is suggested.

Office Volunteers

The true "administrative angels," Office Volunteers help Opera Omaha complete essential tasks for day-to-day business. Whether it is answering phones, aiding in large mailings, data input, researching and compiling data, or providing sales support in the boutique, it is clear that without their help, Opera Omaha could not bring world class opera to the Orpheum Theater stage, nor send meaningful outreach into the community.

Young Ambassadors

Opera Omaha invites students ages 16 and above who are interested in serving as audience service volunteers for all mainstage performances. Young Ambassadors have the opportunity to watch the coinciding performance for free and get a look at the opera from behind the scenes (or from behind the tickets).

Supernumeraries are paid volunteers who appear on stage in non-speaking, non-singing roles, much like being an extra in a movie. Being a "super" takes some time and patience, but is a lot of fun and a great learning experience. Super roles are varied, but might include servants, soldiers, peasants, priests and priestesses, dancers, bartenders, waiters, Japanese relatives, ragamuffins, pickpockets, and sometimes even animals! The majority of super roles are for adults, but in some occasions children also have an opportunity to participate.

Tweet Seats

We are looking for people with great knowledge of the Twitterverse to attend the final dress rehearsal of an opera and tweet throughout the production.  We want your authentic opinions, thoughts, or even play-by-plays of the action happening on the stage.  What's in it for you? You get free tickets to see the opera in exchange for your social media posts!
