Application update

Published by Mie Inchley

Whilst we are still keeping the final list of participants secret for a little while longer, we are very pleased to announce that this year’s Competition received applications from 211 singers from as many as 42 countries.

The screening jury consisted of Professor Svein Bjørkøy, Ingebjørg Kosmo (mezzo-soprano) and Toril Carlsen (soprano). They had the hard task of choosing only 30 candidates, and reported back that the artistic level promises to be very high this year.

In addition to these candidates, our collaborating opera academies will nominate a total of 12 singers who will be admitted directly to the preliminary rounds in Oslo. They are as follows: 

Bayerishe Staatsoper Young Artist Program

Bolshoi Theatre of Russia Young Artist Program

Internationales Operastudio

Jette Parker Young Artist Programme

Lindemann Young Artist Development Program

Opernstudio der Staatsoper Unter den Linden
