They will spend three days in Glenarm working with prestigious opera coaches in the build-up to the competition. The evening will be hosted by NI Opera’s Patron, broadcaster Sean Rafferty and the audience will hear the finalists perform stunning arias, Irish art songs and ensemble pieces. An opera judging panel will select the overall winner of the Deborah Voigt Opera Prize, and also the Song Prize and the audience will vote for the winner of the Kathryn Harries Audience Prize.
