Thank you for your interest in Operafestival di Roma! In order to ensure that your application is complete, you will need to do the following:
1) Please complete the application form (using the button found at the bottom of this page).
a) You will need to upload a resumè, headshot, and your audition video (if you will be unable to attend a live audition).
b) If auditioning via video, please ensure that your recording is of good quality (video and sound) and that it was recorded within the last 6 months.
i) We offer two formats for video submission - YouTube and Dropbox
For YouTube submissions - Ensure the privacy setting on the video is set to "Unlisted" so the video will not be publically searchable but will be available for us to view via the direct link you will submit on your application.
For Dropbox submissions - Ensure that the email address associated with your Dropbox account is correct in the appropriate field on the application. You will need to watch for an invitation to a shared Dropbox folder at that email address. Once you accept the invitation, you will need to upload your audition video into that folder.
