This year’s edition of the prestigious Operalia The World Opera Competition takes place on the scene of the legendary Bolshoi Theatre! Do not miss this annual event, one of the most important of the classical music world, and discover the newest stars of tomorrow’s lyric opera scene!
Founded in 1993 by Plácido Domingo, the competition launched the careers of successful singers like Sonya Yoncheva, Joyce DiDonato, Ludovic Tezier, Rolando Villazón, Stéphane Degout, Inva Mula, Nina Stemme, José Cura, John Osborn, Susanna Phillips, and many more. Once again this year, medici.tv is the official partner for the event.
Operalia's goal is clear: to create a platform for today's greatest young operatic talents and to boost their professional careers. In Plácido Domingo's own words : "Talent alone is not enough; it is also essential for young singers to come to the attention of those impresarios, managers, casting directors, conductors and stage directors who can further their professional careers. My purpose in Operalia is to help identify not only the best voices, but also to discover those singers whose personalities, characters and powers of interpretation show that they have the potential to become complete artists. Individuals such as these become tomorrow's stars. This is why the jury is not exclusively made up of great singers but also includes general managers, stage directors and casting directors."
