Opera Studies Auditions

Please note that you may apply for Opera Studies, Vocal Studies or make a joint application to be considered by both the Opera and Vocal Studies departments.

If you wish to apply for Vocal Studies or as a Joint applicant, please go to the Vocal webpage for audition requirements.

The below audition information is for candidates applying to Opera studies only.

We encourage you to attend a live audition if it is safe to do so. Please refer to the latest Covid-19 travel guidelines from the UK government if you intend to travel from overseas.

If you wish to submit a recorded audition, please note the following:

  • Please ensure that you select ‘RECORDED’ in the audition venue field of the application form.
  • Instructions about how to upload your video will be sent to you after the application closing date.
  • The deadline for all uploaded audition videos is Friday 28 October 2022.

Submitting a recorded audition will not impact on the result of your application. However, attending in person means that you will gain the full benefit of a visit to the school.

We reserve the right to record live auditions for the purpose of internal review only. Any such recordings will be deleted following the audition cycle. Footage is not released to candidates or third parties.
