Shaping the next generation
in collaboration with the Teatro La Fenice Foundation

The Programme

Mascarade Emerging Artists is an opera training and performance programme run from the Mascarade Opera Foundation in Florence in collaboration with Teatro La Fenice in Venice for exceptionally talented young singers and répétiteurs.

This two-year high ability programme is designed for artists with a proven track record of performance excellence and informed by the latest developments in the fields of voice science and performance psychology. Artists are given the opportunity to work alongside renowned singers, coaches, voice consultants and stage directors to enhance their technical capabilities and explore their artistic identities.

Training provision is carefully structured around performance opportunities, including access to main stage roles and covers at Teatro La Fenice. Through the programme’s collaboration with one of Italy’s major operatic houses, artists enjoy the unique prospect of translating what they have learnt into professional practice on stage.

Places on the programme are entirely funded with artists receiving scholarships for their training as well as maintenance and accommodation grants equivalent to entry-level salaried positions in the industry.


Our team consists of internationally renowned singers, vocal coaches, vocal consultants, conductors, stage directors and industry representatives.
