This October, Opera Idaho returns with the Young Artists Program performing The Billy Goats Gruff.
About the Young Artists Program, in the 2017-2018 season, Opera Idaho established its first Young Artists program. Opera Idaho’s Young Artists program is designed to provide training and performance experience for talented singers at the beginning of their professional careers. These young artists will be placed in a nurturing environment, treated as professionals and provided with compensation and a comfortable place to live.
The new class of Young Artists tour the Treasure Valley and surrounding areas with our school outreach program, introducing students in grades K through 12 to opera. They will also be filling smaller roles in our mainstage operas as well as serve as understudies for the lead roles, as well as participate in smaller performances throughout the season.
