The Metropolitan Opera, National Council Auditions for the District of San Diego, takes place in October each year at Point Loma Nazarene University, Crill Performance Hall. This state-of-the-art theatre, located in the Cooper Music Center, provides opera’s budding stars with the perfect stage to showcase their talents. Through the generosity of Point Loma Nazarene University for over five years now, we arecontinuing to uphold the honor and tradition of the Metropolitan Opera, right here in San Diego! Without their support, we would not have the means to provide our performers with such a beautiful & appropriate location to hold auditions. We hope to carry on this tradition for years to come as we continue to search for Opera’s next big stars on one of San Diego’s finest performance venues.
