Training FAQs for Singer Applications If I am applying from outside of the EEA, is my audition different? If you are applying from outside of the EEA, you have the option of choosing to send a video to us instead of travelling to the First Round of auditions. If your video audition is successful, you will be invited to attend a live audition in person at the National Opera Studio. This live audition will take place on Friday 23rd February (a few days before the Final Round of auditions) and will be structured exactly like a standard First Round audition. After your live audition, you may or may not be given a place in the Final Round of auditions taking place on Monday 26th February 2018 and Tuesday 27th February 2018. This means that if you are invited to a live audition AND a Final Round audition you can attend both in one visit to the UK.
