A response to another question

Here is the question:
One more request: I get this question from singers all the time: "Should I sing something from the company's upcoming season, or will they be tired of hearing these particular arias? Will they know to consider me for a particular role if I don't sing something from that show?"

My answer to this question is: Unless you have been requested to sing something specifically from an upcoming show that the company is doing, you should sing what you sing best!
The reasons for this are twofold:

1. Those who hear you have the ability to extrapolate what they need to know from the rep you have, and you should always show the best of you - it gives you the most realistic shot at getting hired.
2. Most companies have their seasons nailed down and cast at least a couple of years ahead.
