Auditions

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.

Singer Auditions

Auditions will next be held in late autumn 2018 to select singers to start the Programme in September 2019. Singers interested in taking part should send their contact details to the Auditions coordinator by email to JPYAPAssistant@roh.org.uk, asking to be added to the Singers audition mailing list. They will then be sent information when the application process reopens in summer 2018. Please do not send any further material at this stage. For information about the format of the auditions, please read the FAQs and guidelines for the 2017 auditions below.
