Just two Brits in Covent Garden’s training programme

The Royal Opera has selected seven artists for its Jette Parker two-year training programme.

They are:
Mezzo-soprano Jingwen Cai (China)
Soprano Marianna Hovanisyan (Armenia)
Bass-baritone Ossian Huskinson (UK)
Baritone Siphe Kwani (South Africa)
Pianist Richard Fu (China)
Director Sophie Gilpin (UK)
and conductor Peggy Wu (Hong Kong, pictured).

The ROH seems to regard itself as some kind of offshore talent haven.
