EMERGING ARTIST PROGRAM
Re-Envisioning Opera for the 21st Century with an Artist focused approach.
At OOTA, our Emerging Artist Program is not your average YAP. Emerging Artists are the future of our artform and deserve a supportive, holistic, and happy place to grow. We believe in work-life balance, living wages, and mental health support, allowing you to be the best artist you can be.
In an effort to upend the standard practices of traditional opera, we’ve designed our program to reflect the changes that we want and need to see in our sector. In our program, artists will experience the rich culture of OOTA and Newfoundland combined, and are supported in every aspect of growth and learning for the whole of their residency.
Our comprehensive twelve (12) month program is tailored to the needs of the 21st century operatic artist. Highlights include:
Mentorship, Coaching, and Training with industry leaders
Opportunities to perform on a professional level
A two (2) month residency in St. John’s, NL
A Wellness App for Fitness, Support & Innovation
And a year of financial stability!
As our Nan always says, many mummers makes light work! Volunteering with OOTA offers the chance to give something back to the arts community, learn some new tricks, and meet a few folks. Work side-by-side with artists, company members and staff to help bring every facet of OOTA’s productions to life! We welcome you to our volunteer team, in whatever way fits you best.
