The Melba Opera Trust presents
OPERA IN THE GARDEN
Inspired by Cloudehill’s beautiful gardens, Australia’s most talented young artists will present a spectacular program of treasured arias and ensembles alongside associate artist Sharolyn Kimmorley AM.
The 2020 twilight concert at Cloudehill Gardens will feature members of the new cohort of young opera singers from Melba Opera Trust performing popular arias and ensembles. The artists represent the most talented emerging young Australian artists as they prepare to embark upon their Melba artistic and professional development program.
Melba Opera Trust is Australia’s premier scholarship program for promising young opera singers and repetiteurs. We ensure that young Australian opera singers and pianists with exceptional promise are supported financially during a crucial phase of their development, namely in postgraduate training as the bridge to becoming polished professionals.
Driven by Dame Nellie Melba’s conviction “a beautiful voice is not enough”, the Melba program nurtures artistic development alongside business training, mentoring and performance experience and is the next step for singers and repetiteurs preparing to become professionals on the world stage.
