MELBA OPERA TRUST

Melba Opera Trust is Australia’s premier scholarship program for promising young opera singers and repetiteurs.
Driven by Dame Nellie Melba’s conviction “a beautiful voice is not enough”, the program nurtures artistic development alongside business training, mentoring and performance experience. We are the next step for artists preparing to become professionals on the world stage.

OUR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Our unique national scholarship program is divided into three complementary parts – Artistic Development, Mentoring and Performance. By offering these three levels of support, we encourage a rounded development program with a focus on excellence and a view to developing polished young professionals who will stand out in a competitive industry.

SUPPORT OUR MISSION

Melba Opera Trust continues the legacy of Dame Nellie Melba to inspire excellence, realise potential and forge careers by providing world-class training for emerging Australian opera artists.  

You can support our mission and give a future to Australian opera artists by giving to an established scholarship or donating towards our program.

    “...so that another Melba may arise.”
