The Sarasota Opera Apprentice Artists Program was started in 1982. Like similar programs throughout the country, it is meant to help trained singers in the important transition from student to professional life.
The program functions within the aesthetic of Sarasota Opera by focusing on the standard operatic repertoire from Mozart to Puccini.
Applications for the Winter 2022 Apprentice Program are being accepted now through August 24th. The program runs January 5 through March 22, 2022 and includes participating in the chorus of the four MainStage productions of Puccini's Tosca, Donizetti's The Daughter of the Regiment, Bizet's The Pearl Fishers, and Verdi's Attila.
