Opera Apprentice Program

The Northern Lights Music Festival Opera Apprentice Program provides young, gifted singers an opportunity to participate in the NLMF mainstage opera as singers in comprimario roles, as covers, and in the chorus.  The roles of Dr. Grenvil, Annina, Guiseppe and the Messanger in this year’s production of Verdi’s  La Traviata will be cast with members of the Opera Apprentice Program. 

The intensive four-week course will provide participants daily with performance seminars, private lessons, master classes, individual coachings, stage craft, movement, and diction classes. 

NLMF instrumentalists and conductors collaborate with singers in chamber music performances throughout the festival season. Singers are invited to perform on frequent chamber music recitals. Two Opera Scene concerts with piano accompaniment will also be presented by members of the program.

Collegiate students and young professionals are welcome to apply.
