Kentucky Opera is auditioning for the 2020/2021 Barbara and Halsey Sandford Studio Artist Program. Sandford Studio Artists participate in mainstage productions as principal, comprimario and cover roles as well as singing in the chorus. In addition, they participate in masterclasses, workshops, lessons and coachings and perform in recitals, community engagement, marketing and patron cultivation events and performances.
For the 20/21 season, we encourage late baroque/early classical, late romantic (Italian), bel canto (French), and an English selection as primary audition repertoire. All repertoire is subject to change.
The mainstage season begins in August 2020 and runs through February 2021. Artists will be contracted per role/production and not necessarily for the entire season. Additional engagements may be contracted outside of this time period.
Please note: this application is for SINGERS only. You can find the application for Pianists here.
