The OperaVision Podcast

OperaVision next generation podcast series charts the journeys of singers on four young artist programmes across Europe – Oper Frankfurt, Palau de les Arts, the Rossini Opera Festival and Opera for Peace. Every month, stage director and podcaster Nina Brazier, brings you privileged backstage access to masterclasses, rehearsal rooms and dressing rooms. We’ll be throwing open the doors to these programmes to find out first-hand about the application process - what was that audition experience like? And how do the singers negotiate the physical and emotional highs and lows as they explore their unique operatic voice? We’ll also meet experts and coaches such as tenor Larry Brownlee, accompanist Kamal Khan and artistic director Rosetta Cucchi, to hear how they guide young singers and build their confidence – alongside teaching that all-important technique.

Subscribe now, and find out how the opera world is developing and nurturing the next generation of talent. OperaVision: Next Generation series launches on Friday 16 September 2022;  wherever you get your podcasts, come and join us. You can also listen to the OperaVision podcast below.

Episode 1

From one young soprano making audition videos in a shelter in Kyiv while the war swept through Ukraine, to another using an international singing competition to showcase her talent, we meet emerging artists from four leading young artist programmes across Europe.  In this episode, we dip into each programme, from Opera for Peace in Rome, to the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro, on to Palau de les Arts in Valencia and Oper Frankfurt.  As well as hearing from the artists about their expectations, we feature insights from experts such as Lawrence Brownlee, and learn how the programmes are nurturing and developing the next generation of talent.
