It only happens once a decade and this summer you can be part of it.
That happening is the San Francisco Opera's much awaited Ring Cycle, and it is seeking to cast extras for that operatic juggernaut.
The company is seeking 10 physically fit men to appear in the summer 2011 presentation of Richard Wagner's epic Ring Cycle. Casting will take place on Wednesday, April 27 at 7 p.m..
For the lucky 10 chosen, it will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform as supernumeraries in two Ring cycle operas--"Die Walküre" and "Götterdämmerung."
Supernumeraries, also known as supers, act as extras (in costume with full make-up) on the stage in non-speaking, non-singing roles.
