2019 SUMMER INTERNSHIPS

Charlottesville Opera offers college students an exciting, hands-on look at arts administration, theater production, and non-profit management during the summer season. Interns work in and are exposed to all aspects of running a professional opera company, while also engaging in their areas of interest. Our small staff size means that interns are a truly integral part of Charlottesville Opera; we encourage interested students to read on for available opportunities and instructions for application. Apply today to be part of this rewarding educational experience!

 

Qualifications

While each of our interns specializes in his or her areas of focus, the size of our company means that every intern will be involved in a variety of tasks involving multiple departments. In addition to their specific duties, interns are expected to perform general office duties as needed, i.e. answering phones, photocopying, research, etc. Therefore all interns are expected to have these minimum requirements:

  • An appreciation for the arts
  • Strong communication skills
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint
  • An attention to detail
  • Ability to organize and prioritize
  • Ability to work on a team
  • Ability to take direction well
  • A valid driver’s license

All interns will report to the Operations Manager.

 

Compensation

Interns will receive a stipend to offset the cost of living and transportation. Free housing with a volunteer Housing Host may be provided; however, all interns are responsible for transportation to, from, and within Charlottesville, as well as for their own meals.

 

Dates

June – July/August (exact dates negotiable)

 

Please see the next page for internship descriptions and application instructions
