Young Artist Programme

Nevill Holt Opera has been committed since 2013 to casting the best emerging operatic talent on its stage. We work almost exclusively with young artists who are either still at music college or who are moving into a fully-fledged career.

Since 2013 we have worked with over 100 young singers, offering them vital experience of life in a professional opera company.  We are the only opera company of our kind which is committed to casting young singers in mainstage solo roles, providing opportunities for the most talented young singers to make essential role debuts.

As a result of our commitment to nurturing the best new operatic talent, NHO has developed a place where audiences can ‘take a seat in front of future stars’ (The Times).  Singers from past NHO productions are now found on the main stage at the Royal Opera House, English National Opera, Opera North and Glyndebourne.

With an increasing programme of year-round work, NHO offers a growing number of professional opportunities to young singers and talented creative artists entering the profession, at a vital stage in their development and career path.  We combine this with a programme of coaching, masterclasses, movement and language development.

NHO sends its young artists to work in schools across the East Midlands, using its young artists as advocates to inspire a new generation with the power and potential of the creative arts.
