WOCo’s Emerging Artists programme is designed to support the artistic development of talented singers and players at the beginning of their careers. Young artists are given coaching and mentoring by the Musical Director, Director and Leader culminating in a 2-night performance in France. In 2020 WOCo is staging Engelbert Humperdinck's Hänsel und Gretel. Rehearsals will take place in London from mid-July and the company moves to France for stage rehearsals at the end of July. Our generous supporters enable accommodation and subsistence to be covered in France.

Auditions for singers will be held in Westminster on Saturday 30th November and 7 December or by arrangement. Auditions for players will be held in early 2020. If you are interested in joining the company for our next season please email henrietta@westminsteropera.co.uk with a brief CV.
