The Chautauqua Opera Company is now accepting applications for its 2017 Young Artist Program. Under the supervision of General & Artistic Director Steven Osgood and Music Administrator/Chorus Master Carol Rausch, it is recognized as one of the best training programs for young singers in America today.
Chautauqua Opera’s 2017 mainstage repertoire will be the U.S. Stage Premiere of Monteverdi’s “Orfeo” (arr. Ottorino Resphighi) directed by Keturah Stickann, Donizetti’s “Don Pasquale” directed by David Schweizer, and Philip Glass & Allen Ginsberg’s “Hydrogen Jukebox” directed by Cara Consilvio. In addition to singing and/or covering roles in the three mainstage productions, alongside established Guest Artists, Chautauqua Opera Young Artists are featured in over 30 unique events each season, including concerts with the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, recitals, music theater revues, outreach events, and more!
Chautauqua Opera's Young Artists also receive extensive musical coaching, have the opportunity to participate in master-classes given by distinguished artists, agents, and voice teachers, and may have opportunities to audition for other opera companies and top artist management agencies during the season. All Young Artists receive housing, paid travel, and a weekly stipend.
