English National Opera Charles Mackerras Fellowship 2016-2018

English National Opera are very proud to launch the application process for the third Charles Mackerras Fellowship. Starting from August 2016 (ENO’s 16/17 season), the successful applicant will hold the position across two years (subject to annual review) to work and learn at the heart of ENO. Throughout their time with the Company, he/she will be mentored by ENO’s Music Director Mark Wigglesworth, work closely with the Music Department (overseen by Director of Music Administration Carys Williams and Head of Music Martin Fitzpatrick), act as Assistant Conductor and off-stage conductor for selected ENO productions, contribute artistically to the ENO Baylis Programme (learning and participation), including ENO Opera Works, and assist and support the ENO Harewood Artists. The Fellow will receive fees, a training bursary and a generous travelling allowance for visiting external companies. During the period of the Fellowship, outside engagements may be taken on with the approval of ENO. Applicants will be extremely gifted musicians who are proficient in English, preferably post-graduate music college educated, with some experience in opera.
