The Metropolitan Opera is seeking jugglers for a new production of Philip Glass’ Akhnaten, rehearsing and performing in the 2019–2020 season. Akhnaten will be a Met premiere, and has been previously performed at both English National Opera and LA Opera. This production will be directed by Phelim McDermott with choreography by Sean Gandini.
Sean Gandini will be leading the audition, and is looking for jugglers of the very highest skill level to perform his unique and complex choreography; dance experience and an understanding of musical structures would be helpful. The jugglers in this production will work with balls and clubs.
Auditions will take place at The Metropolitan Opera on Monday, April 23, 2018, with the possibility of extending into Tuesday, April 24.
Rehearsals will begin in late September 2019 and run through early November. Performances will begin in early November and run through early December. Those cast must be exclusively available during this time.
