Opera Seeks Muscle Flexers

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Chicago’s Lyric Opera is looking for muscular men who can count along with composer Richard Wagner’s music.

Advertising for Big, Buff, Bald (or Shaved) Bodybuilders,'' a Lyric spokesman said on Wednesday the 20 right people will need to have an ear for the music and/or be able to count along.’’

``The men need to be big and muscular. They’ll be shirtless, so their chests need to be very well developed…Think Mr. Universe or a weight-lifting nut,’’ said the Lyric’s Eric Eligator, who is casting the roles of the engine crew for 10 performances of Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde next year.

Auditions begin Nov. 9 for roles that pay $347.50 per week plus health and pension coverage.

$347.50 a week? Do they also give you a cardboard box to live in? Sheesh!

Don’t get me wrong–I love life. I’m just finding it harder and harder to keep myself amused.
