The Hidden Roles in a Self-Produced Opera
So you and your colleagues have a brilliant idea: you're going to put on an opera. You're going to go out there and create your own opportunities. You're going to build your resume and finally do that opera you've always wanted to do the way you've always wanted to do it. Good for you! Now what? Sure, you know you need a cast, a director, and a crew, but what other roles need to be filled? Since you'll likely have a small team, you probably won't have enough people for each individual role. In fact, it's entirely possible that you will need to find a way to encompass all of these roles yourself. These are the behind-the-scenes personalities that have to be adopted to make this production happen.
