Supported by: The Robertson Trust, Idlewild Trust, Elizabeth Salvesen & Scottish Opera’s Emerging Artists Benefactors. Find out more.

Our Emerging Artists programme gives young artists the opportunity of a lifetime – a period of full-time work with the Company to help them launch their careers. Initially set up to nurture outstanding young singers, the programme now includes positions for a repetiteur, a costume trainee and a composer-in-residence.
