Opera Singers are invited to “Diaghilev Audition” on 20-21 November 2015

Founded in 2009 the International Festival of Arts «DIAGHILEV. P.S.» in St Petersburg has become a major cultural event for this city.

The name of Sergey Diaghilev stands out in the history of culture as a great discoverer of talent. The lives of many legendary artists of the ХХ century would have been different if it was not for him. The great impresario gave them the CHANCE to leave their trace in the history of music and theatre.

This year the DIAGHILEV.P.S. Festival starts a new project «Diaghilev Audition». The idea is to give a chance to young talented opera singers to present themselves to directors of the leading opera theatres and well-known producers. The Festival will invite not less than 20 Opera houses.

Auditions will be held in the St Petersburg Capella on the 20-21st of November. The number of the singers will be limited and their professional level high: only winners of international vocal competitions and artists who have already sung on major international stages will be invited. We invisage that most of the singers taking part in the auditions will be Russian but we will welcome any performers from abroad who want to take part.

Within the frames of the project «Diaghilev Audition» the participants can enjoy free admission to the two-piano concert of classical music «Ballets Russes». Spanish motives performed by Spanish duet Moreno Gistain Piano Duo on the 20th of November.

If necessary, the organizers will help participants to find affordable and comfortable accommodation for the duration of the project.

For those wishing to participate in the «Diaghilev Audition», please fill in a short application form and send it to dyagilev-audition@yandex.ru. The organizing committee «Diaghilev Audition» will contact with you!
