Supernumeraries

Supernumeraries are people of all ages who share the stage with operatic artists. The Supers volunteer their time and act as "extras" on the stage: non-speaking, non-paid volunteers. Supers can play soldiers, townspeople, nuns, Gypsies, as well as many other important stage-filling roles. The San Francisco Opera is a company of many talented artists, including principal singers, a world-famous chorus, stagehands, dancers, orchestra, conductors, the stage directors, and the technicians and artists responsible for lighting, scenery and costumes. A Super's enthusiasm and cooperation is an important part of the Company's great spirit.
