Competent and committed
The international jury is made up of experienced professionals who guarantee the broadest possible understanding of the world of opera and music. Whether directors, conductors, pianists, music critics or casting directors - all these experts are represented on the 2015 jury. The common factor is that they have been working with young singers for many years. That is why promoting budding opera singers is a task very close to their hearts.
Long term partners contribute their know how
Many professionals with years of experience in opera making support our singers. In a combined effort the orchestra, the conductor and our pianists provide the contestants with active musical backing.
During auditions at 26 places world wide, 42 singers - 20 female and 22 male from 30 nations - qualified to participate in the final round of the competition in October 2015 in Germany.
Eleven finalists, five female, six male, performed at the final concert. A total of €60,000 was awarded to the top three finalists in both the male and female categories. Each remaining finalist received a development prize.
