This year's grand finale of Plácido Domingo's Operalia, the World Opera Competition takes place at the Latvian National Opera in Riga—an unmissable evening for opera buffs to get to know the stars of tomorrow!
Founded in 1993, this international competition has helped launch the fabulously successful careers of Sonya Yoncheva, Joyce DiDonato, Ludovic Tezier, Rolando Villazón, Stéphane Degout, Inva Mula, Nina Stemme, José Cura, John Osborn, Susanna Phillips, and many more. medici.tv is delighted to bring this exciting event to you once more in 2022.
Operalia's mission statement is clear: to spotlight young talents and afford them the exposure and professional opportunities that will help them reach their full potential. "Talent alone is not enough," says Domingo; "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."
