APPLYING TO AUDITION

Mascarade Emerging Artists welcomes artists from all backgrounds and nations. We recognise the benefits that a variety of experience and cultural contexts brings to both an individual’s performances and the group’s interactions as a whole. In addition to programme places being fully funded, we are also able to support artists with caring commitments through helping secure couple and family-friendly accommodation, as well as advice on moving to Italy. We ask that any artist who is interested in applying for the programme but concerned about any barrier they might face in taking up a position please get in touch with us as early as possible to discuss how we can help. We firmly believe that exceptional talent should be developed, wherever it is found.

It is expected that most applicants will have completed postgraduate conservatoire or equivalent training, have significant performance experience and have a track record of excellence. We welcome applications from artists of all backgrounds and are available to discuss any questions or requirements to support you in applying.
