Guildhall School and Royal Opera House Doctoral Composer-in-Residence

As part of the Research Degree programme, an innovative doctoral studentship in association with the Royal Opera House is now available. This unique collaboration between a prestigious opera company and a conservatoire offers one composer every two years the opportunity to be Composer-in-Residence at the Royal Opera House. The period of study is three years full time, culminating in the completion of a new chamber opera to be staged at the Royal Opera House's Linbury Studio Theatre in Year 3 of study.

Jointly funded by both the Guildhall School and the Royal Opera House, the studentship offers an enriching model of opera development that allows a composer substantial creative research experience in the development of operatic practice, within the setting of a unique collaboration between an opera company and conservatoire. It allows for both critical reflection and creative research, in professional and academic contexts.

The studentship is aimed at composers who have some experience in composing for opera. The supervisory team will be made up of staff members of the Guildhall School's distinguished composition department, and the ROH Associate Director of Opera, John Fulljames, as non-academic supervisor.
