This semi-staged performance included arias and scenes from a variety of operas including La bohème, Cosi fan tutte, Carmen and Don Giovanni.
'One of the most important elements in the advanced training of professional opera singers and repetiteurs is actual experience of working in situ with top-class opera companies.
Thanks to the generosity of Opera North, WNO and Scottish Opera, NOS trainees have the golden opportunity to engage with each company as part of our demanding training programme.
Our residencies have always been wonderfully productive; from musical and dramatic excellence under the guidance of top, international musicians and directors, including Richard Farnes, Elaine Kidd, Derek Clark and David Angus, to learning what constitutes professionalism when working for an international opera house.
The NOS are hugely grateful to the UK opera companies for their remarkable encouragement, support and investment in Britain's cultural future.'
NOS Director, Kathryn Harries
The National Opera Studio is grateful to The Ian Smith of Stornoway Legacy and The Scottish Opera Endowment Trust for their support of this residency.
