Some of the winners who have firmly established themselves in the world of opera include the great Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja, the Mexican tenor Rolando Villazón and of course, one of today’s most sought-after soprano from Bulgaria, Sonya Yoncheva. The number will then be reduced to 10 finalists who will compete at the Final Round held on 26 July at the National Theatre in Prague, accompanied by the National Theatre Orchestra. Maestro Plácido Domingo will conduct this concert.

Many younger famous opera singers have been taking her as a role model for their careers. You may know Agnes Baltsa from her most famous performance of Carmen in George Bizet’s opera. She has performed in operas like Le Nozze di Figaro, Cosí fan tutte, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Aida, Il Trovatore, and Die Fledermaus. Diana Damrau (soprano): The Queen of the Night in Mozart’sThe Magic Flute is German opera singer Diana Damrau’s most often performed role, among other major roles in operas like Lucia di Lammermoor, Rigoletto, Le Nozze di Figaro and Die Fledermaus. In 2001, she won the BBC’s Cardiff Singer of the World award, followed by international assignments from the New York Met to Tokyo. Elina is a member of our opera house since 2003, where she sang operas like Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Le Nozze di Figaro, Cosí fan tutte, Rosenkavalier, and Die Fledermaus.

emulate the great singers. At age 12, Bocelli lost his sight completely following an accident during an association football game. He was hit in the eye playing goalkeeper during a match and suffered a brain hemorrhage. In the New Year, he performed two concerts at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas. At the 56th Golden Globe Awards held on 24 January, "The Prayer" won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song from the film Quest for Camelot. At the 41st Grammy Awards ceremony on 24 February, Bocelli was nominated for Best New Artist, which was won by Lauryn Hill  . October saw the release of the opera album of Ruggiero Leoncavallo's Pagliacci with Bocelli singing the role of Canio. In November, he won the "Best Italian Artist" and "World's Best-selling Classical Artist" awards at the World Music Awards.

Dame Joan Sutherland Australian-born soprano; made debut in Sydney (1951), sang at Glyndebourne (1959–1960) and at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (from 1952); acclaimed particularly for virtuoso technique in the upper register and associated with roles in operas by Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti.

Two of Australia's leading opera singers are opposed to the consignment of tragic female characters such as the innocent geisha girl Madama Butterfly to the cultural wastelands. More than 190 leading Australian composers, directors, musicians and vocalists have called for a national commitment to opera work that redresses gender bias and sexism, and dramatised acts of sexualised violence against women. Cheryl Barker performs with the severed head of John the Baptist, during a full dress rehearsal for the Opera Australia production of Salome at the Sydney Opera House.

Like the very best singers, Netrebko is a complete ‘stage animal’ who draws us into her magical world. Now based in Zurich, where he has had a contract at the opera house since 2001, Kaufmann has moved into the darker waters of Wagner, performing the title roles of Parsifal and Lohengrin. The tenor’s good looks – more Latin lover than German Heldentenor – are also no disadvantage to the singer in a recording business desperate to make opera look sexy. The debut solo album is a smart showcase of Kaufmann’s versatility in Italian (Puccini and Verdi), German (Weber and Wagner) and French repertoire (Gounod and Bizet). Bizet Carmen Jonas Kaufmann, ten; Anna Caterina Antonacci, sop; Royal Opera Orchestra/Pappano.

The singers gain valuable performing experience by participating in recitals and concerts at many Chicago-area venues.

The singers work with the world’s greatest opera singers, conductors, and directors, thus advancing the young artists’ professionalism Andrew Foldi was Director of the Ryan Opera Center from 1991 to 1995.
