In a dynamic culture world, which is more and more influenced by globalization and digitization, young singing talents don't have an easy way. The way to opera stages becomes more and more difficult. The NEUE STIMMEN builds bridges over borders.
Every two years the Bertelsmann Stiftung organizes worldwide pre elimination rounds on six continents for the NEUE STIMMEN. About 1.000 young talents use this offer, which is unique within the international music scene. The best singers qualify for the final round in Gütersloh, where they can present their skills in front of a high ranking jury, intendants and agents as well as representatives of the music industry - in front of an audience and with an orchestra.
