At the National Opera Studio, we offer one of the world’s most formative experiences for young opera singers and répétiteurs who are about to take the biggest step of all into a fully professional career. Working closely with our partner opera companies, we take the utmost care to select singers with the greatest potential and provide them with a nine-month programme that includes, at its heart, exposure to a great range the skills needed to be an opera singer working at the highest level.
Our programme supports twelve singers and four répétiteurs each year. That helps us give our full attention to every person as well as to the collective. The balance between individual work while creating a company ethos is central to what we do.
Applications for the 2019/20 Young Artists' Programme will open on Monday 1 October 2018.
