Character Breakdown

Seeking male and female singers for all vocal chorus ensemble positions (tenors, baritones, basses, lyric and coloratura sopranos, mezzos and contraltos) and to understudy the following:

CHRISTING DAAE:
20s: beautiful young singer. Soprano voice that combines elements of classical and pop singing. Sings G below middle C to high E

THE PHANTOM:
30s – 40s: high baritone or tenor (with a strong low range) with a contemporary sound. Able to sustain high G# with ease in full voice and high C# in falsetto. Looking for a truly dynamic actor with excellent acting and singing ability.

RAOUL, VICOMTE de CHAGNY:
20s – 30s: dashing, handsome young aristocratic man who falls in love with Christine. Contemporary high baritone/tenor (2 octave range from A flat to A flat).


MONSIEURS FIRMIN and ANDRE
FIRMAN is the hard money man – Baritone with high E/F. ANDRE is charming with artistic temperament – Baritone: high G with ease. 30s – 50ish; the managers of the Paris Opera House. Trying to be elegant, they are slightly befuddled and bumbling. Need good instincts for stylish comedy.

CARLOTTA GIUDICELLI:
30s – 40s; the prima donna of The Paris Opera. A diva in every sense of the word. Coloratura soprano, to high E. Requires opera training.

MADAME GIRY:
Late 30s – early 50s; the Opera’s ballet mistress. An ominous, stern, forbidding figure. Mezzo soprano to high B flat with no discernible break between head and chest

MEG GIRY:
Should convincingly play late teens to early 20s; A young, petite ballet dancer with a strong mezzo soprano to G. Needs strong classical dance technique and excellent pointe work

UBALDO PIANGI:
30s – 50s; the opera’s leading tenor, Italian operatic tenor, companion to Carlotta. Sings to high C. Requires opera training.

BUQUET:
MIDDLE aged to elderly “character man”. The head flyman of the Opera Populaire. Bass baritone but required to sing to E.
