Youth Opera Young Company

WNO Youth Opera offers training and performance opportunities to exceptional young singers, allowing you to develop your performance skills in a professional opera company. 

Over the last decade WNO Youth Opera has developed a reputation as an exceptional theatre ensemble earning 5* reviews from the national press, nomination for a South Bank Sky Arts Award and winner of a prestigious RPS and Wales Theatre Award.

WNO Youth Opera bring the heat of protest to every inch of the hall in a vivid, stirring tribute to the late composer. The legacy of the late Peter Maxwell Davies could not have been better honoured in this brilliant production of his penultimate opera, Kommilitonen! by WNO Youth Opera. At once inspiring and appalling, and with an immediacy that was sometimes as brutal as the tyranny being portrayed, here was documentary opera at its most compelling
