What is a supernumerary you ask? A ‘super’ is a non-singing/non-speaking acting role in an opera. Supers can be anything from palace guards to ladies in waiting, to judges, executioners, you name it. You get the chance to work with world class opera singers and directors and experience Romeo & Juliet in another medium.
