There are a number of former NOS trainees at Longborough this year, including Gerard Collett (Schaunard) and Aiden Smith (Colline) with the wonderful Katie Bird (Mimi) in Richard Studer's production of La Bohème.
Last term NOS trainees were privileged to work with the fabulous Joyce DiDonato in a masterclass at the Royal Opera House.
Thank you to Joyce and the Royal Opera House for capturing such a memorable and inspiring event and allowing us to share this footage.
You brought such a special quality to the stage ~ thank you for that!
