The Young Artists Scheme at Opera Holland Park was launched in 2011 to open doors into the industry for emerging directors, conductors and singers, with the generous financial support of the late Christine Collins.

Since its launch ten years ago, we have worked with singers who have gone on to develop their careers with other companies at home and abroad. Crucially, many of them have returned to Opera Holland Park each summer – not just as regular principals but in a variety of roles, including our Inspire education and outreach work and our online music lessons.

The 2021 Young Artists cast and creatives are:

Lada Valešová – Associate Conductor
Rebecca Meltzer – Associate Director
Thomas Ang – Répétiteur
Jacob Phillips – Count Almaviva
