Stage Managers!

We are looking for a brilliant Stage Manager to make our re-imagined production of Carmen happen on high streets & in Arcola Studio 1 this summer.

We are looking for a Stage Manager who is happy driving a small van with costumes, props and equipment to each of our high street performances in South London for our unique ‘street opera’ performances which give local people a chance to experience high quality accessible opera for free. The opera is re-imagined for London life today, edited to approx. 1hr and sung in modern English with 4 singers, 3 professional instrumentalists and a youth brass trio. The ideal candidate would be comfortable working with the Director & ASM at performances to organise the team, drive the van to different locations and preferably can read music. As well as our street performances, we are also presenting the production in Arcola Studio 1 for 1 week as part of their Grimeborn Festival after our similar sell-out re-imagining of Die Fledermaus (4 stars The Guardian & The Stage) in 2019.

Dates: Monday 25th July – Sunday 21st August (includes rehearsals, street performances & Arcola)

If you’re interested in applying please email Artistic Director Joanna Turner for more details: [email protected].

Baseless Fabric is committed to diversity and we are particularly keen to hear from practitioners from ethnically diverse backgrounds.
