Job Description

About the role

We would like to meet Stage Managers and Technical Stage Managers who have an interest in touring, can score read and would like to work with us now and in the future. If you are a dynamic, flexible, adaptive individual who thrives on being hands-on and working as part of a team then we would like to meet you. Ideally, you will hold a current driving license and be able to drive up to a Luton van.

We anticipate the first available project taking place across October/November 2021, with our usual touring pattern being across the Autumn and Spring. We welcome applications from underrepresented groups, as well as those who haven’t had traditional theatre or stage management training.

Fees are variable but will be between £25-30,000 p.a. (pro-rata) plus subsistence, based upon the shape and size of each tour.

About ETO

For over 40 years, English Touring Opera (ETO) has held a unique place in the opera industry as the only mid-scale touring company offering regional venues, and thousands of audiences, outstanding live productions and impactful Learning and Participation projects, across a significant national footprint.

At the heart of our ethos is a commitment to touring ambitious programmes of high-quality, innovative, and unjustly-underperformed opera that engages and inspires audiences. We reach over 40,000 people every year through five mainstage productions of ambitious, high-quality, opera. Touring across the largest geographical reach of any UK company, from Truro to Perth, ETO serves over 20 towns and cities with severely limited access to other live performance.

ETO’s award-winning Learning and Participation Programme annually engages over 12,000 children and adults nationwide through two specially commissioned operas for children and young people with special educational needs.
