Emerging Artist Programme

Longborough’s Emerging Artist production is an opportunity for singers that have recently finished, or are about to finish, their vocal studies. 

The programme is designed for emerging professional artists at the beginning of their careers, providing a unique performance opportunity with a world-class opera company.

"The programme was invaluable in terms of improving musicianship, stagecraft and physical awareness. It provides a very positive and helpful start to our careers"
