About the programme

The National Opera Studio offers expert, tailored training to a small number of exceptional opera singers and repetiteurs for free. They leave our nine-month Global Talent Programme with the artistry, confidence and contacts to thrive in a lifetime of opera.

Our Global Talent Programme, delivered in collaboration with the six full-time UK opera companies, is a comprehensive nine-month course designed to provide Young Artists with all the necessary skills for success. Our Young Artists receive top-tier musical, vocal, and language coaching, training in stagecraft and physical disciplines, valuable performance opportunities, substantial professional exposure, resilience coaching, and much more.

Each year, we accept up to twelve singers and four repetiteurs into our Global Talent Programme. The limited size of our cohort ensures that our training is tailored to each individual, fostering a strong sense of company identity.
