Each year the Programme selects a limited number of talented 'young artists' to become salaried company members and work full-time at the Opera House for a two-year period.  During this time singers receive daily coaching in all opera disciplines, including musical style and interpretation, languages and stage technique, as well as guidance in related issues and career development.

You can hear Madeline speaking about what she has to look forward to with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden - with Lynne Freeman on Arts on Sunday 15 August 2010.

The Royal Opera House has produced a video of Madeleine talking about her experiences taking part in the Jette Parker Young Artist Programme.
