Wanted: A Home Away from Home

Do you live near Wolf Trap? Do you have extra space in your home? Are you curious about what goes on behind the scenes in a performing arts organization? If so, we have a great opportunity for you!

Wolf Trap Opera boasts an amazing community of Housing Hosts. (Check out this link.) Each summer, these  families open up their homes to give our young artists a place to stay while they’re working at Wolf Trap for the summer.

The good news is that we have placed almost all of our singers for this coming summer season. The remaining challenge is that we still have a number of fabulous other people to accommodate – young professionals who are working in the areas of stage management, administration, directing, and videography. We focus a lot of attention on our singers, for our young artists are our primary reason for existence. But creating a fully-functioning opera machine also means providing work for a large number of talented folks who aren’t in front of the footlights. (And like the tip of any good iceberg, they far outnumber the singers!)

In addition to having a chance to support a developing career, housing hosts also receive invitations to dress rehearsals and other opera insider events. The hosts offer a private bed & bath and access to shared kitchen and laundry facilities; artists and staff are all responsible for their on meals and transportation. Did I pique your interest? Give us a call at 703-255-1935 or write us at opera@wolftrap.org!
