“LA Opera’s Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artist Program will help ensure the highest standards of performance not only at LA Opera, but at opera companies around the world.” (Plácido Domingo) Created and overseen by Plácido Domingo, the Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artist Program is a two- to three-year paid residency for singers and pianists of exceptional talent who are currently in transition from academic training to a professional career in opera. Inaugurated during the 2006/07 season, the program is designed to support the future of opera by discovering and developing the talents of exceptionally gifted young artists to become performers of potentially international stature. LA Opera uses its resources to provide extensive training for the young artists and also gives them the opportunity to further develop their skills in mainstage roles, as principal artists’ covers, and in young artist concerts and productions. Alumni of the program have made important debuts at the Metropolitan Opera, Covent Garden, San Francisco Opera, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, English National Opera, Frankfurt, Zurich, Theater an der Wien, and many other of the world’s important opera houses.
