National Opera Studio welcomes its young artists for 2023/24

National Opera Studio
The National Opera Studio is welcoming 16 Young Artists onto its Global Talent Programme for 2023/24; in addition to funding the training, the National Opera Studio provides the Young Artists with a performance stipend, a bursary and additional funding for external lessons and auditions. 

Alongside these, two young artists will be welcomed onto the National Talent Programme, its newly developed shorter, flexible pathway opportunities for UK-based artists in the early stages of their careers. And this newly created National Talent Programme forms part of the Studio’s Diverse Voices initiative, which provides support, guidance, and encouragement to young singers at various stages of their paths to opera careers working with artists, singers, and choirs across a variety of levels and platforms, connecting young children to local musical communities all the way to training artists who are already singing professionally on stage.

The young artists present regular free lunchtime recitals at the National Opera Studio in Wandsworth, with the next dates being 18 October & 8 November, and all the young artists will be performing in a programme of operatic scenes, directed by Keith Warner, on 6 & 7 December.
