The Stuttgart Opera offers talented young singers the opportunity to gain their first professional experience at a large repertoire house.

In the 2016/17 season, the Opera Studio Stuttgart consists of six young soloists. There are Esther Dierkes (soprano), Idunnu Münch (mezzo-soprano) and Kai Kluge (tenor) from Germany, Josy Santos (mezzo-soprano) from Brazil, Padraic Rowan (bass baritone) from Ireland and Michael Nagl (bass) from Austria.

Follow our next generation of young artists through this season as they take their first steps on the stage of Stuttgart Opera House, side by side with experienced soloists and conductors. The portraits of the young singers will take you to their biography pages.

The Opera Studio Stuttgart is made possible by Schwabengarage GmbH - Ein Unternehmen der Emil Frey Gruppe Deutschland.

Supported by the initiative "Young Singers" of the Förderverein der Staatstheater Stuttgart E. V., in cooperation with the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Stuttgart
