Thank you for your interest in auditioning for English National Opera. Please see below for information about current opportunities within the company.
ENO grants auditions for principal roles and covers to professional opera singers on an invitation-only basis. The artist or their management should contact ENO’s Casting Manager or email email@example.com with requests for an audition. Please note that we perform all operas in English so if it is not the artist’s first language they may be required to offer an aria in English. If you are also interested in chorus work, please state this clearly in your covering email/letter, and include any relevant experience on your CV. Membership of the ENO Harewood Artists programme is by invitation only.
