2019 YOUNG ARTISTS

Opera Saratoga is excited to welcome 30 of the most gifted emerging operatic artists from around the country - and around the world - to Saratoga Springs this summer!

NEW THIS SUMMER: The Young Artist Program at Opera Saratoga has historically included two "levels" of artists: Studio Artists and Apprentice Artists. Opera Saratoga continues to provide professional mentorship and performing opportunities to gifted emerging artists with different levels of experience through the program, but beginning this season, all members of the program are now designed "Festival Artists."  

Sponsoring a Festival Artist in the Young Artist Program is a special way to support Opera Saratoga while providing a unique opportunity to personally get to know the artists who bring our productions to life.
