Hear the opera stars of tomorrow perform in the 2008 Middle Atlantic Regional Finals of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. Each of these young hopefuls will sing two arias for a panel of judges headed by a representative of the Met as they compete for prizes and the opportunity to advance to New York to vie for a place in the National Winner's Concert on the Met stage and consideration for the Met's Lindemann Young Artist Development Program. Nearly half of the singers on the current Met roster were participants in the Auditions program, including last year's Middle Atlantic Winner.
For information about the program or ticket priority, please call Ruth Shaw at (202) 452-7907. Remaining tickets go on sale to the public at the KC Box Office on January 10, 2008.
