Soprano Jacquelyn Stucker on how NEC has had an impact on her career, and her love for opera.
Offering a small number of especially gifted performers a remarkable combination of mentorship, study, and performance opportunity, the NEC AD in Opera takes full advantage of NEC's incredible resources. As part of NEC's joint apprentice program with Odyssey Opera, AD students have the opportunity to be cast in a secondary role in an Odyssey Opera production each season. AD candidates are also guaranteed at leastone principal role with orchestra in a mainstage NEC production per year, a showcase performance in historic Jordan Hall, and are frequently asked to represent NEC in outreach programs and at special events.
The program typically admits one singer each year following a rigorous selection process. The small size of the program allows the Opera Department to invest significant time and personal attention into the training and development of each AD singer.
The program includes a full tuition scholarship plus $10,000 annual stipend.
