The Lindemann Young Artist Development Program

The Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program was created in 1980 by Met Music Director Emeritus James Levine to identify and develop extraordinarily talented young artists in the realm of opera. The program has trained a new generation of celebrated American and international opera singers, as well as coaches and pianists, who perform at the highest standards in productions at the Met and opera houses around the world. The Met’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program is unparalleled for the quality and scope of resources available to its participants. Throughout their instruction, young artists draw upon the vast pool of world-renowned talent available at the Met, including current and former Met artists, internationally recognized coaches and master teachers. Program participants have access to daily rehearsals and practice sessions, where they can observe opera’s great singers preparing their roles for the current Met repertory. They are presented with the unparalleled opportunity to perform onstage in Met productions, as many are assigned supporting roles and serve as understudies for featured singers.
