Celebrate our Jette Parker Young Artists as they draw their year to a close with the annual summer performance. Spot stars of the future and enjoy a showcase of musical and creative works from our singers, conductors and stage directors and répétiteurs.
Isabelle Kettle returns to direct excerpts from some of the greatest operas after her recent success directing Kurt Weill's The Seven Deadly Sins and Mahagonny Songspiel for online audiences in April. Andrés Presno performs the title role in Verdi’s Don Carlos, Michael Papadopoulos conducts mezzo-soprano Stephanie Wake-Edwards and tenor Filipe Manu in a duet from Donizetti’s Lucrezia Borgia. Alexandra Lowe and Egor Zhuravskii become the ever passionate lovers in the balcony scene from Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, and the performance culminates with Act I scene ii of Verdi's Falstaff featuring all current Jette Parker Young Artists (see full cast information for all artists featured) and Former Jette Parker Young Artist Gyula Nagy.
The Jette Parker Young Artists are joined by guest conductors Sir Mark Elder and Richard Hetherington in the pit with The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.
Live performance is a shared experience, and our audiences are at the heart of what we do on our stages, backstage, online, in cinemas and in our communities. This year’s global pandemic has affected all arts organisations across the world. We have lost £3 in every £5 of our income, and any Government loan will take us only part of the way. We need your help to bring artists back to our stages. Please consider making a donation to the Royal Opera House Recovery Campaign.
