Michael Stubbs and Malcolm Roberts Opera Prize 

The Michael Stubbs and Malcolm Roberts Opera Prize is awarded to an emerging artist to assist them in developing their operatic careers through specialised coaching, mentoring and performance.

The $50,000 opera prize enables the recipient to work in residence with Victorian Opera as a part of the performing company. This includes opportunities to perform in productions and recitals, receive private coaching from Victorian Opera’s Artistic Director Richard Mills and the company’s music staff, and mentoring from an Australian singer with an international career. 

Applications for 2021 are closed. The inaugural recipient of the Michael Stubbs and Malcolm Roberts Opera Prize is baritone Stephen Marsh. Read more
