Talent: Opera Studio

Dutch National Opera attaches great value to investing in talented singers and also wants to connect these artists closely. In 2018 a new talent residence started: Dutch National Opera Studio. A number of young talents are immersed in the professional life of the opera company in a special program. They receive intensive support in their artistic and professional development and are given the opportunity to play roles in opera productions on the main stage.

With your donation you make the scholarships of these young talents possible. Would you like to contribute to this? Become a Donor Circle member of Dutch National Opera.
