Young Artist Programme

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

Longborough Festival Opera is dedicated to helping emerging artists to launch their careers in a supportive, professional and meaningful way.

Our Young Artist programme provides world-class performance opportunities to singers and players at the beginning of their careers: some still studying, and some at the early stages of their path into the profession.

Each year we provide supportive coaching and mentoring from a professional creative team and technical team, ensuring an outstanding experience for the artists and an excellent production to delight audiences and critics alike.

"As a young singer it is often difficult to find the opportunities to perform in a real theatre... it was really useful for me to witness and work with a full tech/operations team and see the relationship between the cast and the backstage crew."
