For 25 years British Youth Opera has been training future generations of professional opera singers as they make their way from music college onto the opera stages of the world. Past BYO participants include four Cardiff Singer of the World prize-winners and over 100 singers with roles in Britain’s opera houses in the 2012/13 season alone.

This Anniversary Concert brings together dozens of BYO alumni under the batons of Artistic Directors past and present in a selection of opera highlights by Mozart, Verdi, Puccini and more.

Soloists include sopranos Rosemary Joshua (from BYO’s first ever production, Don Giovanni, 1987), through to alumni from BYO’s most recent seasons and its acclaimed productions of, among others, The Rake’s Progress and La bohème.
