Information about references
After you have submitted your application, the references you have listed below will receive an email with a link to YAP Tracker so that they can upload their reference directly, by the deadline. Please check back to ensure that the two letters have been submitted. If it is getting close to the deadline and they are yet to do so, you can add up to two more references below. More information about the letters of recommendation and what they should contain can be found on the Royal Opera House website, here.
Information about recordings
We require recent audio recordings, if possible, presenting three contrasting arias. Please do not upload videos.
The recordings do not need to be of professional quality and is better to include a home-made recording than to miss the deadline trying to arrange a professional recording. We would prefer the recording to include a full single-capture of each aria without editing.
Note: While having a pianist accompany you live is usually standard, we understand that given the current restrictions in place in many countries it might not be possible to record with a live pianist. If singing to a recording, please let us know under 'Details about the audio recordings submitted' so that we are aware of the circumstances.
You will be notified by the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme on the outcome of the selection process by Monday 16 August.
