When to see it
The annual showcase on the main stage, featuring all the Young Artists and accompanied by full orchestra in the pit.
The Jette Parker Young Artists Programme supports the artistic development of talented singers at the beginning of their career and highlights the international young talent that opera attracts. On the Programme, singers, conductors and directors from around the world perfect their art with coaching from opera's most highly-regarded teachers and performers. The Summer Performance – a highlight of the Royal Opera Season – gives you a chance to appreciate this developing talent, as these remarkable artists perform a varied programme of opera excerpts, including works by Mozart, Gluck, Debussy, Saint-Saëns, Rossini and Verdi.
