2018 International Opera Awards sponsored by Mazars

Join the opera world’s leading lights as they come together to celebrate the best and brightest.

09 Apr 2018

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. Awards for Young Singer and Newcomer recognise emerging talent.

Directed by Ella Marchment, the evening will also feature performances by some of opera’s greatest names, including sopranos Anush Hovhannisyann and Camilla Tilling, and bass Brindley Sherratt, accompanied by a live orchestra. Further performers will be announced soon

2018 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 thousands of 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 support the Opera Awards Foundation, a charity which awards bursaries to aspiring operatic talent around the world.
