Paris tout en fête
Missed the Met’s cattlecall for War and Peace supers? Don’t worry! All the really cool kids are going to Toronto to be extras in the opera house sequence of Repo! The Genetic Opera, lensing this week.
According to the myspace site of director Darren Lynn Bousman (auteur of Saw II), the production is looking for “200 people to volunteer each day as opera patrons on: WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 17 and THURSDAY OCTOBER 18. It is an opportunity to see an amazing cast of renowned artists perform on stage during the making of a feature film …. We’re looking for men and women between the ages of 25 and 75, and the wardrobe requirements are tuxedos/black suits for men and formal attire for women.”
Bousman promises no pay for the two days’ work, but participants are promised glimpses of such “renowned artists” as Paris Hilton, Sarah Brightman and Paul Sorvino, who are featured in the opera house scenes.
