We head to Rome for the inaugural academy of Opera for Peace, the emerging artist programme which aims to level the playing field for emerging opera singers from all countries, backgrounds and circumstances. We meet four of their emerging singers and learn how they are applying what they learned, approaching auditions, and dealing with comparison with competing artists. We hear insights from experts Thomas Hampson, Jenna Wolf and Kamal Khan on the challenges of the programme and how they are supporting and nurturing the next generation of operatic talent.
