Melba Opera Trust 

The Trust was established in 2008 to provide scholarships to develop Australia’s most promising young opera singers and repetiteurs.

With the closure of Melba Memorial Conservatorium of Music at the end of 2008, Melba Opera Trust carries forward Dame Nellie Melba’s bequest and her final wish that her gift establish a scholarship “…so that another Melba may arise”.

The Trust ensures that young Australian opera singers and repetiteurs with exceptional promise are supported financially during a crucial phase of their development, namely postgraduate training as the bridge to becoming polished professionals on the opera world stage (source Melba Opera Trust website).
