Founded in 1993 by Plácido Domingo, Operalia is an international singing competition which aims at revealing the most promising talents and personalities in the operatic world. Among the singers rewarded by Operalia, we can quote Sonya Yoncheva, Ludovic Tezier, Rolando Villazón, Stéphane Degout, Inva Mula, Nina Stemme, José Cura, John Osborn, Susanna Philips, among others. Every year, the competition sets in a different opera house. Following Paris, Mexico, Madrid, Tokyo, Milan, Moscow, Beijing, Verona and Los Angeles, Operalia is hosted by Coven Garden in London! And for the sixth year in a row, partners with Operalia to broadcast live the final round of the competition.

Operalia’s goal is clear: highlight the young talents and help them in their professional career. Plácido Domingo: “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.” Here are the terms in which the legendary tenor and conductor Plácido Domingo talks about the competition he created twenty-two years ago.

This year, the prestigious hall of the Royal Opera House will host Operalia 2015 for the very first time since the competition was launched. Finalists will be accompanied by the Royal Opera House Orchestra, conducted by Plácido Domingo.
