A timely opera is looking for a young actor to appear in the production’s New York City debut this month.
The New York City Opera is currently seeking a child actor for a role in the New York premiere of “Cruzar la Cara de la Luna,” the world’s first mariachi opera which tells the timely story of an immigrant family divided by the U.S.-Mexican border.
A young male actor, aged 7–10, of Latino or Hispanic descent is wanted to play the role of Young Raf, the principal character as a child. This will be a non-speaking and non-singing role, but talent must understand spoken and sung Spanish language and should be musically inclined. The production is seeking an actor no taller than 4’0”.
“Cruzar la Cara de la Luna” will rehearse Jan. 20–23 and performs Jan. 25–28 at the Rose Theater, Jazz at Lincoln Center, in NYC. Compensation is TBD.
