27th International Opera Competition Vichy & Clermont-Ferrand From 11 to 17 July, 2021

Let's be romantic…

At the heart of a double season celebrating freedom, Clermont Auvergne Opera, through its international Opera Competition embraces an artistic movement- romanticism - which originated at the end of the 18th century, to then flourish and develop in opera, during the first decades of the 19th century, celebrating the triumph of the freedom of expression of feeling and passion.

The 27th edition of the International Opera Competition - shared for the first time between Vichy and Clermont-Ferrand - will feature two operas and melodies from that period. L'Isola disabitata, Haydn's azione teatrale, will be auditioned for the Festival Pian'Opéra (operas performed on piano) with pianist Philippe Cassard and La Sonnambula, opera in 2 acts by Bellini will be the subject of an important co-production between no less than 8 French opera houses! Finally, a Romantic Recital with Susan Manoff will give us the opportunity to (re) discover the most beautiful melodies of Rossini, Bellini and Donizetti.
