2017 International Opera Awards sponsored by Mazars
Join the opera world’s leading lights as they come together to celebrate the best and brightest.
Opera’s answer to the Oscars, this annual red-carpet ceremony honours outstanding achievement on stage, backstage and in the pit, with awards including Singer of the Year, Opera Company of the Year and the annual Lifetime Achievement Award.
The evening will also feature live performances by some of opera’s greatest names. Artists already scheduled* to perform include Stuart Skelton, Bryan Hymel, Lauren Fagan and Rhian Lois.
2017 sees over 100 candidates in the running for twenty different awards. Shortlists have been whittled down by an expert jury, chaired by Opera Magazine editor John Allison, from a record 20,000 nominations, submitted by opera audiences and professionals worldwide.
Founded by opera lover and philanthropist Harry Hyman, the Awards exist not only to celebrate established stars, but to support the next generation of talent. The Awards raise money for the Opera Awards Foundation, a charity which awards bursaries to aspiring operatic talent around the world.
