British Youth Opera is the UK’s premier company for training new and emerging operatic talent. It offers valuable opportunities for young singers to receive professional training in all aspects of opera through workshops and master classes, and to take part in rehearsals and performances in its annual Summer Season of opera at the Peacock Theatre in London.

BYO’s primary purpose is to offer operatic experience to those who have a serious aim of pursuing careers in opera performance, are at the start of their careers, and are new to the profession.

BYO is a training organisation; successful candidates do not pay to participate in the Summer Season (for which a contribution towards subsistence will be given).

British Youth Opera regrets that it is unable to provide feedback on interviews or auditions and reserves the right to alter the proposed repertoire.
