Bygone Theatre is seeking a Music Director for an ambulatory opera opening at Campbell House Museum in June 2020. The show is comprised of short opera that celebrates the history of Campbell House by transporting the audience into a early 20th Century cocktail party. Moving around the house, audiences will see short vignettes of fellow partygoers and house staff, centred around the medium of phone calls.
Currently, the show is comprised of A Hand of Bridge, The Telephone, and climaxes with La Voix Humaine. The successful candidate would be welcome to give input on alternative pieces that serve the same creative vision.
We welcome applicants from all experience levels.
Compensation is a tired scheme, with a guaranteed honourarium of $400. Additional compensation depending on fundraising, grant applications, and ticket sales will be provided.
Please write to Producer, Conor Fitzgerald (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Artistic Executive Director Emily Dix (email@example.com) with questions and applications.
ABOUT BYGONE THEATRE
Bygone Theatre's goal is to promote the growth and development of independent theatre in Toronto through production, education and outreach. We produce character-driven stories that are written or set in the early to mid twentieth century in an attempt to connect audiences to parts of our past that remain relevant and intriguing today. Through education initiatives such as classroom workshops and student matinees, we connect younger generations to pieces of history they are unlikely to encounter elsewhere, while also fostering youth interest and participation in theatre production. Outreach initiatives connect Bygone with other historically-focused groups in Toronto, further strengthening our city's cultural heritage. Bygone's commitment to accessible theatre is shown through our use of wheelchair accessible venues; our various ticket discounts for disadvantaged, underserved and minority communities; and inclusion of artists of all skill and experience levels both on and off stage, including training positions for those who are new to a role.
Bygone Theatre is committed to developing a long-term sustainability plan that incorporates a commitment to diversity, equity and accessibility; social responsibility; and environmental stewardship.
