This is an opera performance by the second-year, third-year, and fourth-year entrants of the New National Theatre's Young Artists Training Programme. Young singers who have completed the San Francisco Opera Center's training program for opera singers (Merola Program) and currently performing worldwide are participating in this production. The young artists have devoted themselves to studying under this curriculum, which is based on the highest traditions of international opera training. The distinguished American conductor Jeffrey Rink will lead these performances of Mozart's magical opera in an exciting new production by the renowned British director David Edwards.
