Applications are now being accepted for Festival Napa Valley’s new Manetti Shrem Opera Program, a tuition-free intensive opera training program offering advanced study and performance opportunities to college-aged students and recent graduates in the idyllic setting of Napa Valley. Participants will study under the guidance of renowned faculty, guest artists, guest conductors, and soloists, and take part in a fully-staged performance of Gianni Schicchi conducted by Kent Nagano and directed by Jean-Romain Vesperini.
All participants receive assistance towards housing, food, and local transportation in Napa.
As Festival Napa Valley prepares to return to a live summer season, the health and safety of our artists, audience, and staff is our highest priority. The number of 2021 Manetti Shrem Opera Program participants will be limited, and all COVID protocols will be strictly observed.
