Encouraging Outstanding Opera Talent


Les Azuriales Opera focuses on finding truly outstanding young artists and making a significant difference to their early operatic careers. We have an excellent track record of identifying and encouraging talented young singers through our existing Masterclass and Competition programme.

We conduct:

  • rigorous selection auditions;
  • a summer masterclass and singing competition in the South of France;
  • an annual London showcase concert;
  • a small number of opera performances in the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild (Cap Ferrat, France) to support this initiative.

In addition we aim to

  • Arrange at least one other week long programme for young artists;
  • Provide young artists with performance opportunities;
  • Award scholarships  and bursaries to help young artists with specific projects which will make a significant difference to their careers;
  • Encourage in the creation of new work for the voice.

To support this we aim to raise every year at least £50,000, to ensure we achiev our aims..

It is a key objective that our Company of Angels (our donors) are able to engage with our Young Artists as much as possible.
