The National Opera Studio is the premier opera training organisation in the UK. We exist to train a select group of talented young musicians to become the leading artists of their generation. We provide intensive and bespoke professional training at the highest level for a small group of singers and répétiteurs each year, and prepare them for life on an international operatic stage. We work in partnership with not one, but six of the leading opera companies in the UK: English National Opera, Glyndebourne, Opera North, the Royal Opera House, Scottish Opera and Welsh National Opera. Our Young Artists are with us for an often life-changing nine months, and undergo a rigorous programme that is individually designed around their particular vocal and developmental needs. We do not charge any fees for Young Artists to come to the Studio. This enables us to offer places on our programme to artists regardless of their financial position.
