The heading Talent Development covers a large number of DNO activities, including those of the Dutch National Opera Studio, those of the Opera Forward Festival as well as activities made possible by enoa.
Dutch National Opera Studio
The Dutch National Opera Studio is a two-year programme in which seven young, talented singers and two répétiteurs are prepared for an international opera career. The Opera Studio combines workshops and coaching with a wide range of professional experiences.

Opera Forward Festival
The Opera Forward Festival (OFF) is the ultimate platform and the engine for innovation in opera. Since its first edition in 2016, OFF has been looking for the power of opera today, in a world that is changing rapidly. OFF is the place where we give way to new ways of making opera, with new artistic and social impulses, with new narratives and voices.
Dutch National Opera is a partner of enoa, the European Network of Opera Academies. Through this important partnership with enoa, DNO contributes to international co-productions and organizes workshops and talent development programmes for young creators and performers.
