Wolf Trap Opera’s network of host families makes it possible for dozens of talented singers to benefit from a WTO residency each summer. Housing hosts make a personal connection with a young artist, gain a unique behind-the-scenes perspective on opera, and receive invitations to WTO dress rehearsals and other invitation-only company events. Filene Artists’ and Fellows’ stays range from 8 to 12 weeks, between late May to mid-August, and Studio Artists and Apprentices are 1- or 2-week stays in May and/or August. Housing homes must be: Non-smoking environment, located within a 7 mile radius of Wolf Trap (preferred), include a private bedroom and bath, with access to kitchen and laundry facilities.
