The Glyndebourne Opera Cup – an international competition for opera singers is designed to discover and spotlight the best young singers from around the world, in partnership with UK broadcaster Sky Arts.
The overall winner will receive a top prize of £15,000 and the guarantee of a professional role within five years at one of the top international opera houses represented on the competition jury.
Sky Arts, The Glyndebourne Opera Cup’s official UK broadcast partner, will broadcast the competition with a dedicated TV series, capturing every stage of the competition, from the early rounds in cities around the world to the finals.
The biennial competition will focus on the work of one great operatic composer each time it is held.
The inaugural competition, culminating in March 2018 at Glyndebourne, will focus on Mozart and is open to singers of any nationality aged between 21 and 28 who are in the early stages of their professional career and ready to perform on the opera stage.
Three preliminary rounds will take place in January 2018 in Philadelphia, London and Berlin – applicants will be notified of having reached the preliminary stages by 15 December 2017.
The latter stages of the competition take place on the main stage at Glyndebourne in March 2018.
