Sounds like trouble and it is. The Dallas Opera is holding auditions March 29 to 31 for a boy to play the role of “Trouble,” the son of Madame Butterfly and her lover Pinkerton, in the upcoming Madame Butterfly.
This is a non-speaking acting role, not a walk-on, which would require your child to be on stage for a significant portion of the opera.
Daytime and evening availability is a must.Â Any child cast (and a parent, relative or guardian) would have to commit to late night rehearsals and performances, as well as four school performances scheduled to occur during regular school hours.
The Dallas Opera is seeking a blond-haired boy between the ages of 4 and 8 for the role of a lifetime.Â He must be no taller than 44 inches (3 feet, 8 inches), mature for his age, attentive, able to follow directions and comfortable around adults.
Mustn’t object to loud singing or being wept over, beautifully.
If you think you’ve got “Trouble,” let Dallas Opera Production Assistant Emily Gast know.
