2018 Fellows

Singers are the most visible part of any opera company, but much important work happens behind the scenes. Wolf Trap Opera’s Fellowship track provides entry-level professional experience for future leaders in directing, coaching, and conducting.

About the Fellowship Program

Each Coaching Fellow’s summer is structured according to individual strengths and needs. This typically includes serving as rehearsal pianist for one or more productions, providing artist coaching as needed, running supertitle translations during performances, and coaching and playing the Studio Artist scenes program.

Directing Fellows serve as Assistant Directors for WTO productions at The Barns and the Filene Center. Other assignments may include private dramatic coachings, direction of the Studio Artist scenes program, and development of other projects.

Fellowship candidates are typically currently involved in or have recently finished graduate degree programs or young artist training programs. Candidates who are already regularly working professionally are typically beyond the scope of this program.
