Opera North: Talent Development Fund 2020

Opera North is the national opera company for the north of England. As well as a full programme of mainstage operatic productions and a symphonic concert season, the company also has an extensive programme of music education work. The Projects Department leads the company’s programming and commissioning of new music.

Opera North Projects commissions and produces music projects across genres that re-imagine the parameters of opera.

2020 – 2021:

Resonance is a creative residency programme for professional music-creators from BAME backgrounds working in any genre of music, to test new ideas and develop network.

Resonance will support professional BAME music creators across genres: the programme has included zulu, arabic and indian classical music as well as hip hop, soul and pop. Each artist develops a new idea for performance, exploring an aspect of what makes opera: storytelling, new musical forms, cross-genre collaboration, theatricality or collaboration.

In previous years the programme has limited applications to artists based in the north of England but would like to include the Midlands. The heart of the programme is a set of residencies surrounded by support and opportunities to further engage with the company’s work.
