WNO Associate Artist

(Paid Traineeship)

Fixed Term August 2022 – July 2023 (start date can be flexible but before the end of August 2022)

Welsh National Opera is delighted to be offering the opportunity for 2 singers to join its ranks as WNO Associate Artist. This is a full-time, year-long traineeship between August 2022 and July 2023.

To apply please visit WNO/Associate Artists

To find out more about our Associate Artists programme, join WNO Head of Artistic Management Kathryn Joyce, WNO Head of Music and Casting Advisor Russell Moreton, WNO Associate Artist Adam Gilbert and WNO Artists Administrator Fern Wilson on Monday 20 September, 6:30pm for an informal webinar. To register, click here


The traineeship will provide a structured learning and professional development programme alongside the opportunity to perform small roles and covers within WNO. Regular vocal and language coaching, singing lessons and workshops with industry professionals will be scheduled to ensure that trainees are given access to the highest level of industry performance, and professional development, opportunities.

We are proud of our steps towards better inclusivity and now have one of the most diverse Boards in the British opera industry. However, opera is still viewed as elitist and we know that significantly more diversity in our work force is required to start to break down this conception, and to make sure that all people see WNO as an open and accessible option for a career in the arts.
