Young Artists

Opera Lafayette's Young Artists Program, established in 2007, affords advanced students and young professional singers from across the United States opportunities to work with leading artists in the field, to cover lead roles, and to perform small roles in mainstage performances. Young Artists also work with Opera Lafayette's in-school education program, performing in DC public school classrooms. The Young Artists Program may engage up to four core singers each year. Young Artists applicants must show demonstrated interest and ability in the general period of repertoire Opera Lafayette performs. 

Opera Lafayette does not hold annual auditions. If you are interested in Opera Lafayette's Young Artist program, please email a cover letter, resume and sound file to
