Associate Artist: Royal Opera House Youth Opera Company
Freya will be working with the Royal Opera House Youth Opera Company over the coming months in her role as Associate Artist. The Royal Opera House's Youth Opera Company is a 50-strong group of diverse, talented children aged nine to 13 years old. Members come from across Greater London and from a wide variety of backgrounds. What they have in common is real potential as singers and actors; potential that they discover and develop through being part of the Company. They generally meet once a fortnight, at the Royal Opera House, for a full day of workshops and rehearsals.
