The Fondazione Mascarade Opera, responsible for producing The New Generation Festival from 2017 to 2020, established Mascarade Opera as a performance and training programme in collaboration with our partner houses around Europe, designed specifically for the career development of the most promising emerging artists - young singers and répétiteurs - from around the world. 

The foundation aims to support the very greatest international talent from diverse backgrounds which is why places on the two-year programme are entirely funded with young artists receiving scholarships for their training as well as living and accommodation grants equivalent to entry-level salaried positions in the industry. The programme provides unparalleled training and performance opportunities for exceptional young artists, including an annual showcase and roles at a host of partnering opera houses. 

The foundation additionally presents an annual concert series and large-scale co-productions throughout the year, taking audiences on extraordinary musical journeys which are part of our mission to champion great musical traditions and sustain their future.
