Three-Year Artist Career Program
Develop your craft and business skills in NYC with the International Brazilian Opera Company (IBOC).
IBOC may sponsor artists who need US working visas.
This program supports early and mid-career artists with extraordinary ability to increase international recognition and financial return through our Agency Department and Career Mentoring Division.
IBOC will act as a Non-Exclusive International Agent for selected artists and expose new names to the competitive international market.
Artists will be featured in the IBOC regular programming and are required to engage in a 3-year self-designed project that aims to elevate professional recognition.
We leverage the tools, techniques, and methods of opera to cross-pollinate with artists from diverse musical, technological, and artistic disciplines. We aren't only for Opera singers! For example, we have jazz artists incorporating theatrics and classical violin into their songs and concept albums. This intentionally advances the art form of opera and the audiences who appreciate it.
In the program, seniors perform along with new artists. Cross-cultural collaboration is one of the pillars of IBOC’s platform, aiming at community growth, generating collaboration opportunities, and artistic development.
Our community is built of diverse people, discovering new forms to create, produce, promote, and support underrepresented voices.
We review applications on a rolling basis.
Placement is restricted by available slots and season programming needs.
Please fill in the application form and send us:
•CV or resume:
• Portfolio with samples of previous works, headshot, online video sample, website link, and press clipping.
• U$200 non-refundable application fee includes one interview online and a professional evaluation of your career path.
