Domingos Operalia Comes to Moscow for the First Time

Moscow is to host Operalia, the most prestigious world opera competition, established by tenor Placido Domingo.

The contest is due July 18 – 24 on the stage of the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Music Theatre. The event will be dedicated to the 85th anniversary of the Russian opera star Galina Vishnevskaya.

Forty contestants from the US, Argentine, China, Africa and Russia will compete for the prizes. The winners will take part in the final concert conducted by the great tenor himself.

Operalia is annually held in various capitals of the world. According to Domingo, “The Russian singers have been winning the contest so often, that it is high time to hold it in Russia, which possesses one of the greatest opera schools in the world”.,
