Alum selected for ROH Jette Parker Programme

Alumna Alexandra Lowe is one of four new singers to join the Royal Opera’s Jette Parker Young Artists Programme (JPYAP).

Commencing in September, the prestigious programme supports the artistic development of young professional singers, conductors, directors and répétiteurs at the start of their careers. Placements last for two years, during which time Young Artists work on productions for The Royal Opera singing small roles, covering larger roles or joining the music or directing staff.

Oliver Mears, ROH Director of Opera, said: ‘The Royal Opera has always sought to provide the best opportunities for talented young singers and directors from across the globe. Our vision is to provide these young artists access to all areas of opera production while immersing them in life at the Royal Opera House. We are delighted to welcome the 2020/21 intake of Jette Parker Young Artists, and look forward to helping them become the opera names of the future and working with each of them over the coming years.’

Alexandra, who graduated in 2017, follows in the footsteps of 116 JPYAP alumni who have successfully completed the Programme since its inception in 2001. Following their graduation, 86% have gone on to enjoy successful international careers, appearing on stages across the globe.
