Young Voices

Through the talent programme Young Voices (Unge Stemmer), Bergen National Opera helps to guide young opera artists at the beginning of their careers.

Bergen National Opera ́s Young Voices programme mentors young Norwegian artists at the very start of their development, in particular when they are studying overseas. Currently we are supervising five young singers, a composer and a young librettist.

While keeping close watch on their studies and supporting their growth, we also provide opportunities within our projects and mainstage productions.

Librettist Astrid Luisa Niebuhr also joined the Academy and has now completed her text for All About My Family, which features three of our Young Voices singers.

Currently our Young Voices are studying at conservatoires including Oslo, London and Glasgow. The overall programme is led by the distinguished bass-baritone, Simon Kirkbride.

Young Voices is supported by the Kavlifondet
