Now is your chance to give your very good dog the attention it deserves and put them centre stage — in front of thousands of adoring onlookers.

Opera Australia is calling for well-behaved pups to star in its upcoming opera La Traviata, which takes place on its stunning floating Handa Opera stage on Sydney Harbour. During certain performances, your pooch will make an appearance in a glamorous party scene in the first act of the show.

Pooches must well trained and not easily spooked — the show features fireworks, noise, bright lights, lots of cast members and an audience of 3000 — as well as being fit and healthy enough to climb the stage's steps.

You'll need to be available to be a #proudparent from the side stage, with performance dates on weekends throughout April. And you'll get complimentary tickets to the show, either on the night of your dog's stage debut or for another date.

There's no word on how many pups will be chosen, but there are 11 show dates to be filled.

Find out more about Handa Opera's dog role and fill out an application here. 'La Traviata' takes to Sydney Harbour from March 27–April 26.
