Jette Parker Young Artists Programme
What is the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme?
The Programme supports the artistic development of talented singers at the beginning of their careers. Young Artists are employed as salaried members of The Royal Opera and immersed in the life of the Royal Opera House over a two-year period.
The specially-tailored programme includes extensive daily coaching in languages, stagecraft and vocal techniques, alongside training for cover roles, performing in concerts and for smaller roles on the main stage.
The Jette Parker Young Artists Programme is generously supported by Oak Foundation.
