The Future of Opera: What Lies Ahead?

At the NEUE STIMMEN symposium, prominent representatives of the opera industry came together with talented young vocalists and experienced singers to discuss such issues as types of employment, career prospects and future-oriented training for opera singers.

Vocal studies – and then what? In a culture of pop music and sensational events, does opera singing as a vocation still have a future? What kind of vocational training should a conservatory or music academy provide to meet the needs of the future? At the NEUE STIMMEN symposium, we met with talented young vocalists, experienced singers and prominent figures in the opera industry to discuss these and other questions relating to types of employment, career prospects and future-oriented training.

"Not only is it important to discover young talents, but also to advise them and provide them with long-term support."
