Operalia 2021

Operalia 2021 is proudly presented by Rolex in Moscow, Russia from Monday October 18th to Sunday October 24th, at the historic Bolshoi Theatre.

Operalia 2021 is open to singers of all voice types, between the ages of 18 and 32 years old and who are ready to perform on the world’s greatest opera stages.

The international jury, established international Opera Casting Directors and General Managers, presided by Plácido Domingo, will listen to each of the chosen participants during two days of quarterfinals. Twenty participants will be then selected to continue on to the semifinals, and ten singers will be chosen for the finals. The quarterfinals and semifinals are carried out in audition form, but the final round is presented in the form of a gala concert accompanied by full orchestra.


Operalia was founded in 1993 by Plácido Domingo to discover and help launch the careers of the most promising young opera singers of today. Operalia’s goal is to attract singers between the ages of eighteen and thirty-two, of all voice types from and all over the world, to have them audition and be heard by a panel of distinguished international personalities, in the most prestigious and competitive showcase in the world.

Each year, the Competition receives hundreds of applications. A pre-selection jury listens to every recording submitted and chooses the top candidates (between 30 and 40) to participate in that year’s competition. The international jury, presided by Plácido Domingo, listens to each of the chosen participants during two days of quarterfinals. Twenty participants are then selected to continue on to the semifinals, and ten singers are chosen for the finals. The quarterfinals and semifinals are carried out in audition form, but the final round is presented in the form of a gala concert accompanied by full orchestra.

Participating or even winning a prize in this competition is only the beginning of every singer’s relationship with Operalia. Since the jury is comprised, for the most part, of international opera managers and casting directors, these distinguished jurors often invite and engage some of the singers to perform in productions that are being scheduled in their respective theatres.
