12:42 The National Opera Studio in Partnership with Second Movement

Following on from the landmark project 12:40 which took place in 2018, the National Opera Studio is delighted to present 12:42, which features twelve brand new commissioned opera arias from some of the most exciting composers and librettists working today.

Each of the arias has been composed especially for the National Opera Studio’s Young Artist singers, who, along with their répétiteur, have been involved in the creative process since the outset.  The arias are designed to demonstrate the individuality of each singer’s vocal talents, and will be used in their audition repertoire for years to come.
