Resident Artist Program
Great performers begin at Indianapolis Opera. As a young artist development program, Indianapolis Opera delivers to young artists a complete training experience. IO resident artists present operatic performances and education experiences throughout Indiana and in neighboring states.

Since 1989 Indianapolis Opera has worked with over 130 young artists who have gone on to national and international careers in some of the world’s largest opera houses.
Artists who participate in the resident artist program comment on both the breadth and depth of their experiences. From multiple opportunities to perform, intensive work with guest faculty and work with Indianapolis Opera team members, we prepare our artists to take that next important step in their careers.
In 2015 Opera News named Mezzo Soprano Emily Fons one of their 25 up and coming artists. Emily reflects on her time with Indianapolis Opera in 2008.
