'a great opportunity to sample the … UK’s most advanced opera students.' The Stage

Opera North throws open its door to welcome back the National Opera Studio (NOS) to showcase some of the finest singers of the next generation of opera. The residency gives the NOS Students the opportunity to become a professional member of the company for a week and culminates in a vibrant, semi-staged concert.

The programme features snippets from some of Britten’s finest opera’s including Albert Herring, Lucretia and the Turn of The Screw.

The National Opera Studio residency is supported by a grant for Arts Scholarships from the Leverhulme Trust.
