Youth Opera 16 – 25 uses the expertise and skills of an international opera company to support the professional development of young performers and technical placements. Every two years a new Youth Opera ensemble is formed, they spend the next year preparing for a fully staged production. Residencies and workshops are on offer in between productions, offering the chance to work with experienced directors, conductors and singers to develop technique and explore repertoire. Over the last decade WNO Youth Opera has developed a reputation as an exceptional music theatre ensemble.
Youth Opera offers opportunities to undertake residencies, workshops and performances, as well as the chance to undertake the Arts Award. In 2012 our 10 – 14 year olds toured Wales and England with the world premiere of Lynne Plowman and Martin Riley's World War II ghost story The Face in the Mirror, and in August 2013 our 16 – 25 year olds performed Paul Bunyan in the Wales Millennium Centre.
Watch out for future opportunities here.
If you are aged between 16 and 25 and would like to get involved, please email Paula Scott.
