How to apply for the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme
There is not an upper or lower age limit for the Programme. However, applicants should bear in mind that the Programme is intended to benefit extremely gifted individuals at the start of their professional careers. Singers, conductors or répétiteurs are expected to have some performance experience and to have completed training at an established music college (although this is not an essential requirement). Stage directors are expected to have some experience in mounting productions, either as a director or an assistant director.
The Royal Opera House is an equal opportunities employer and the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme is actively seeking to employ artists currently under-represented in the opera world. This includes minorities and disabled people.
