Opportunities

Auditions for the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the uncertainty around what kind of programme we could offer as a result, we are not recruiting new artists to join us in 2021/22.

We remain committed to current artists and recent leavers whose programmes have been disrupted.

Singers and stage directors who had been hoping to audition and wish to connect with the Programme should register their interest via this online form.

Women Conductors

The Jette Parker Young Artists Programme offers training opportunities for emerging women conductors in opera and ballet.  LockDown/SkillUp in spring/summer 2020 offered many alumni from previous courses the chance to study repertory and hone the communication of their musical ideas with online tuition from Sian Edwards and Jessica Cottis.

The next course is tentatively planned for early November 2020 and will be designed to support alumni of previous courses.

Diverse Directors

The Royal Opera is committed to storytelling excellence.  The Jette Parker Young Artists Programme continues to work with a large cohort of stage directors to help them transfer their skills from theatre to opera and navigate the specific challenges of the artform.

With the current curtailment of live performances we remain committed to the development of those we are already engaged with, but have no new training or observership opportunities to offer at the present time.
