A talented group of Emerging Artists join us for the 2023/24 Season: baritone Ross Cumming, soprano Inna Husieva, tenor Monwabisi Lindi, costume trainee Lovisa Litsgard, returning mezzo-soprano Lea Shaw (as Associate Artist), and repetiteur José Javier Ucendo.
Our Emerging Artists programme, which was launched in 2009, offers young talent a period of full-time work with the Company to help launch their careers. They have opportunities to perform with us in live productions throughout the Season as well as work in-house with staff and visiting coaches to develop their skills. The Emerging Artists singers perform in a number of this season’s productions and tours, and in recitals at the University of Glasgow and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. They are supported by Scottish Opera’s Emerging Artist Benefactors and Elizabeth Salvesen.
Initially set up to nurture outstanding young singers, the programme now also includes positions for a repetiteur and costume trainee. Previous Emerging Artists include soprano Jennifer France, baritone Ben McAteer, repetiteur Jonathon Swinard, and composers Gareth Williams and Lliam Paterson.
