Our vision

Today’s talent prepared for tomorrow’s opera.


Our mission

In partnership with the UK’s six leading opera companies we play a leadership role in the development of operatic talent for the resilience of the art form, through high-quality training, support and dialogue. Through our partnerships, we create world-class development opportunities for artists of exceptional promise and will become a resource for the sector.


Our values

The individual is at the heart of our training. We do not adopt a common approach for all, and we do not have a set curriculum. We celebrate multiplicity of talent and individuality of perspectives, and encourage the individual voice and persona to flourish. Our approach to group learning reflects the ideal professional rehearsal room- collaborative and generous of spirit, encouraging of individual ideas, challenging and experimental. We support imagination and individual drive, curious minds and critical thought. We are bold, proud and aspirational.
