Since it was established in 1987, the NEUE STIMMEN International Singing Competition has been one of the opera industry's largest such events worldwide. Thanks to NEUE STIMMEN, numerous talented singers have been able to attract the opera world's attention and lay the foundation for a successful career. Two examples of singers who have done so in recent years with particularly impressive performances are the French-Danish soprano Elsa Dreisig and the Canadian mezzo soprano Emily D’Angelo. Anyone wishing to emulate them will have the opportunity as of tomorrow. That's when the application phase begins for NEUE STIMMEN 2024, whose aim is to find and promote the best young opera talents.
Liz Mohn, president of the Liz Mohn Center and initiator of the NEUE STIMMEN International Singing Competition, says: "It's a major success story for all of us that NEUE STIMMEN is now discovering and bringing together young opera singers from around the world for the 20th time. Through their participation in the NEUE STIMMEN competition, they experience the unifying power of music while making valuable contacts and furthering their personal development. NEUE STIMMEN is much more than just a singing competition. I'm confident that we will once again receive many international applications from first-class talents, and I'm very much looking forward to the final round in Gütersloh in October 2024."
