Operalia 2019

I am absolutely delighted to share that I have been selected to compete in the 2019 Operalia Competition in Prague, Czech Republic.

Operalia, founded in 1993 by Plácido Domingo, is a worldwide competition hosted in a different city each year. 40 young singers are selected from entries of over 1000 to travel to compete in in the final stages.

To say I am excited is an understatement. I am so looking forward to hearing fantastic singing and meeting people from all over world, as well as getting the opportunity to perform to so many people of influence within the opera world on a fantastic stage.
