Irshadgul News report,
Scottish Opera is celebrating its 60th anniversary by appointing its 60th emerging artist.
Emerging artists from the opera company perform on stage, as well as work in-house with staff and visiting coaches to develop their skills.
The program began in 2009 and has since expanded to include behind-the-scenes roles in addition to opera singers.
This year’s emerging cast includes tenor Ocean Wynn Bowen, soprano Zoe Drummond, costume trainee Isabelle Mercier, baritone Colin Murray, mezzo-soprano Lee Shaw – who is returning for a second season – and tutor Kristina Yorgova.
Sarah-Jane Davies, Head of Casting at Scottish Opera, said: “Everyone has exciting projects and is already working on them with the support of our team.”
Christina, Zoe and Ossian have completed a very successful tour of Scotland performing opera highlights, while Lee and Colin have recently finished performing in our five-star production of Aindamar.
“They would all join together for luncheon recitals at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) in Glasgow.
“I look forward to working with all of them on this exciting new adventure.”
