International BelCanto Prize 2021
The International Bel Canto Prize includes a role offer within a future ROSSINI IN WILDBAD festival production and, generally speaking, a modest amount in cash, depending from its sponsors. The 2021 International Bel Canto Prize includes simbolical prize money of 1.000 Euro funded by the Swiss Classic pro bono foundation.
Admission to the competition can be via video audition(pre-selection), via participation in the concerts of the Festival, or via active participation in the 2021 Akademie BelCanto. There is a possibility that outstanding talents – proved and selected by recordings (see auditions) – present themselves in an audition during the festival and directly in a Rossini & Co concert.
Age limit for the International Bel Canto Prize is 32 for female singers and 35 for males. Only in 2021 the age limit is lifted to 33 for female and 36 for male singers due to the interuption caused by the Corona virus. Two arias by Rossini or his contemporaries or Mozart are compulsory. One must be in Italian and include a recit.
