The Royal Opera House has announced the names of the five young artists who will be joining the Jette Parker scheme in September 2018, two of whom will almost certainly be familiar to London audiences. 

The Scottish-Iranian bass-baritone Michael Mofidian has popped up on this blog a few times, most recently in recital at Kings Place, and at the Oxford Lieder Festival, he was also Leporello in British Youth Opera's recent performances of Mozart's Don Giovanni

The American countertenor Patrick Terry sang Ruggiero in Handel's Alcina with Royal Academy Opera and Boy/Angel 1 in George Benjamin's Written on Skin with Melos Sinfonia. He has been covering Guildenstern in Brett Dean's Hamlet at Glyndebourne, and will be singing The Refugee in Jonathan Dove's Flight for Royal Academy Opera and the title role of Handel's Teseo with La Nuova Musica at the London Handel Festival. 

The other three new young artists are the Chilean soprano Yaritza Véliz, the Chinese mezzo-soprano Hongni Wu and the Argentinean baritone Germán E Alcántara.
