The National Opera Studio is unique in that we work in partnership with not one, but six major opera companies:



As a small, independent training organisation, we believe strongly in the strength of partnership working, the nurture and cultivation of relationships, and an open and collaborative outlook. We believe best practice is best shared, and we foster and develop our relationships in the UK and abroad for the benefit of our artists and our organisation, as well as the wider sector.
