New National Theatre Tokyo
10:00 CET

New National Theatre Tokyo’s contribution to World Opera Day focuses on the young artists from their Studio. We follow them as they prepare for their March 2021 production of the rarely performed opera buffa masterpiece by Domenico Cimarosa, L’impresario in angustie, about an impresario in distress trying to cope with uncooperative singers. After times of such global angustie, Tokyo give its young singers a chance to shine.

Opéra Comique
12:00 CET

Young soprano Jodie Devos is our guide in Opéra Comique’s film about the next generation of talent in Paris.  As a young artist associated with this famous theatre, Devos has a unique perspective on opportunities there for singers which she narrates in words, song and extracts of her performances of French repertoire such as Gounod’s La Nonne sanglante. We visit the beautiful spaces of Salle Favart and see la Maîtrise Populaire de l’Opéra in full youthful voice.

Royal Opera House Covent Garden
14:00 CET

We cross to London’s Covent Garden where we have privileged backstage access to the Royal Opera House for World Opera Day. Covent Garden is busy behind the scenes and on World Opera Day we will join past and present Jette Parker Young Artists as we explore one of the world’s greatest opera houses.

Staatsoper Hannover
16:00 CET

To Hannover, where we meet three young singers from the Staatsoper: Darwin Prakash, Mumbai-born new recruit to Opera Studio; Sarah Brady, the Irish soprano who recently joined the Ensemble; and James Newby, a British baritone who won the 2016 Kathleen Ferrier Awards. How do they balance their time between the opera house and other passions? Hear these young artists as they enjoy: learning a new work by Philip Venables and mushroom picking; performing Britten and video gaming; singing Mozart and playing rugby.

Dutch National Opera
18:00 CET

To Amsterdam next, for a week in the life of the young artists who have recently joined the Dutch National Opera Studio led by internationally renowned soprano Rosemary Joshua. The film, directed by Edwin Vermeulen, follows this group of young artists, who come from as far away as South Korea, as they discover Amsterdam’s imposing stage.  We eavesdrop on audition training and preparations for the Dutch premiere of Denis and Katya with director Ted Huffman.  We enjoy these young talents as they perform and also hear their voices in other ways - through the life stories that have led them from across the world to Amsterdam in 2021 to prepare for the challenging life of an opera singer.

Polish National Opera
20:00 CET

Through its streams on OperaVision of Moniuszko’s operas (and the young singer’s competition that bears his name), Polish National Opera has delighted audiences worldwide with the discovery of the  great Polish composer of the 19th century. Today, young artists from the Opera Academy in Warsaw bring us forward in time with a short concert of 20th and 21st century Polish repertoire directed in a semi-staged performance by Ewa Rucińska. Specially recorded at Teatr Wielki in October for World Opera Day, the programme includes works by Karol Szymanowski, Witold Lutosławski, Szymon Laks, Franciszek Maklakiewicz, Tadeusz Baird, Henryk Czyż and Paweł Łukaszewski.

Festival Verdi Parma & Fabbrica of Teatro dell'Opera di Roma
22:00 CET

World Opera Day closes on OperaVision with opera at its most intimate. Inconfessabile Verdi from  the 2021 Festival Verdi in Parma is a series one-to-one performances in which opera singer and audience member meet soul-to-soul in the intimacy of a church confessional. Close but safe (they are separated by the central partition of a purpose-built confessional), the lucky audience members in Parma will hear young talents from Fabbrica, the young artists programme of Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, deliver soul-searching arias and duets from AidaOtello and Rigoletto. Thanks to OperaVision cameras, audiences globally can enjoy these performances too, in which young artists and the Studio that nurture them show they are a force for good in today’s world.
