Resident Artist Program


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, and comprimario, to principal roles in mainstage productions. Resident Artists also perform at Ordway and Schubert Club concerts, donor functions, Behind the Curtain events, Opera Insights and regional outreach programs.

Master classes with guest clinicians, individualized language work, acting, movement, stage combat, and professional career development are all benefits of the Resident Artist 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.
