rap-9-4-13 -750

The Minnesota Opera’s Resident Artist Program offers a full season of employment for talented artists beginning their professional careers. From late August through April, Resident Artists gain valuable experience in assignments ranging from ensemble, understudy, comprimario to leading roles in mainstage performances. Resident Artists also perform concerts on stage at Ordway Center for Performing Arts, Schubert Club’s Courtroom Concerts, donor functions, adult education classes and regional outreach.

Master classes with guest clinicians, individualized language work, acting, movement and stage combat, yoga and professional career development are just a few benefits of the program.

The program is designed to bridge the gap between an artist’s academic education and professional career. Ideal Resident Artists are singers, coaches, administrators and directors who have completed their post-graduate education and may have some professional experience. We have no age limit and are an equal opportunity employer.
