The Resident Artists Program seeks to offer emerging young artists invaluable performance experience as they begin their professional opera careers. Selected through a highly competitive national search, four singers reside in Naples during the peak season and are given training and performance opportunities including principal roles in productions at The Wang Opera Center and secondary roles in productions at The Festival Under the Stars. Additionally, the singers perform a children's opera for an in-school tour and present standard operatic repertoire in numerous community outreach performances. Opera Naples staff, supplemented by area professional artists, provide coaching, instruction, and career advice. Singers receive a weekly stipend, a travel stipend, and housing.
