Opera Now launches Stella Maris Vocal Competition blog
5 November 2010
Opera Now correspondent, Yehuda Shapiro, has launched a new blog to cover this year’s Stella Maris International Vocal Competition (6-16 November 2010).
Accompanying the Competition’s 6-day cruise from Turkey to Egypt on board MS Europa, Yehuda will post regular updates as the event unfolds.
Scheduled highlights include four evening concerts featuring singers from the young artists' programmes of eight leading opera companies in Europe and North America.
High profile performance and recording opportunities plus a cash prize of € 15,000 are on offer for three winners. Their names will be announced on the last day of the cruise, following an audience vote and feedback from the Competition's distinguished international jury.
The first Stella Maris Competition was won in 2009 by Jong-Min Park, a Korean bass from the young artists’ programme at La Scala, Milan.
Next year’s itinerary will carry opera lovers on a tour around the British Isles.
