‘Superb variety…’

‘The standard was excellent… as always. A very enjoyable evening.’

‘Exciting opportunity to hear some fine voices and possible national or international stars of the future.’

Audience feedback from previous years

Contestants nominated by the UK’s leading conservatoires, compete for a prize before a distinguished panel of judges. The audience collectively act as one judge. The audience’s vote is also revealed.

This event is perfect for anyone who is either interested in spotting emerging talent, and enjoys following singers’ careers, or for an opera novice, who would like to dip their toe in the operatic water, getting a taster from a wide range of operas, before committing to a whole one.

Each item is introduced and set into context by a compère and accompanied by Robin Humphreys, described as a ‘world class repetiteur’ by Louise Flind in Opera Today.

This event includes the traditional 70 minute supper interval. Come and cast your vote!
