The Chicago Lyric Opera
announced this week the good news that they ended their 08/09 season in the black by around $100,000. Wisely, though, the company is keeping an eye to the future by adopting many of the same cost-cutting measures other U.S. companies have adopted in recent months. It also appears they’re keeping an eye to filling those seats at the same high percentage as last season with an announcement today that auditions will be held on June 20th for 18 solo dancers to appear in next season’s production of Berlioz’ La Damnation de Faust
to be directed by Stephen Langridge. Among the successful applicants will be “one highly trained female dancer with experience pole dancing.” Please note however that a pole will not be available during the auditions so dancers are requested to bring video evidence of such talents for full consideration.
