Five young opera singers from across the island of Ireland will compete in front of a live audience and jury panel to win the Deborah Voigt Opera Prize and become the NI Opera Young Opera Voice of 2023.  There is also a Song Prize and the Audience Prize which you will vote for in a short interval.

This year’s finalists are Anna Gregg (soprano), Petra Wells (soprano), Anna-Helena Maclachlan (mezzo-soprano), Cathal McCabe (tenor), Ryan Garnham (baritone) with Doireann O’Carroll as our Peter Rankin Piano Intern.

The Competition Finale lasts about an hour, followed by a short interval where the judges deliberate and the audience cast their votes, with tea and biscuits provided! The audience then reconvenes to hear the winners announced and presented with their awards.
