Soprano joins Bayerische Staatsoper Opera Studio

Vocal alum Sarah Gilford has been accepted onto the Bayerische Staatsoper Opera Studio, commencing in September.

Founded during the 2006/07 season, the Bayerische Staatsoper Opera Studio supports highly talented young artists, preparing them for an international career through role studies, vocal lessons, acting and movement classes and language training.

Young artists are also cast for small roles in productions on the main stage and take part in several concert projects, which they create together with Opera Studio pianists.

The Bayerische Staatsoper is based at the National Theatre in Munich. Soprano Sarah, who graduated in 2016, has been cast in five main stage productions, including Papagena in Die Zauberflöte, Sandmännchen in Hänsel und Gretel and Echo in Ariadne auf Naxos, as well as the title role in Thomas’ Mignon for the Opera Studio.

She said: ‘I am unbelievably excited to be joining the Bayerische Staatsoper Opera Studio. Being offered this opportunity was very much unexpected and the fact a house as big as this has taken a chance on me has boosted my confidence enormously. September can’t come soon enough!’
