The Wagner Society Singing Competition

Wagner, Mozart, Menotti and more


The annual singing competition of The Wagner Society is an opportunity for promising young Wagner voices to compete for prizes of tuition and language coaching, as well as for the chance to attend the student bursary programme at the Bayreuth Festival. Six finalists, chosen from first round auditions, will compete, singing works by Wagner and other composers in front of a distinguished panel of judges.

The panel will be chaired by Nicholas Payne (director of Opera Europa) and will include Hugh Canning, Graham Clark, Isabel Murphy, and Rachel Nicholls. The prizes will be presented by Dame Anne Evans.
