German-Australian Opera Grant

Australia’s Gateway to an International Career!


More Than Opera has worked closely with opera philanthropist

Hans Henkell since 2000 to help young Australian artists gain the necessary skills to work internationally. The aim of the German-Australian Opera Grant is to guide emerging Australian opera singers in the early stages of their professional careers with an opportunity to work on the operatic stage of this major German Opera House.

The Grant includes a one-year employment (junior) contract with the HESSISCHES STAATSTHEATER WIESBADEN, one month of German language tuition at the Goethe-Institut and one month of work experience at the Opera House.
