The 13th Glenarm Festival of Voice Competition FInale
Join NI Opera for the culmination of the 13th Glenarm Festival of Voice, the Competition Finale, hosted by our Patron, BBC Radio 3 broadcaster Sean Rafferty.
Five singers from across the island of Ireland compete in front of a live jury panel to win the Deborah Voigt Opera Prize and become the NI Opera Young Opera Voice of 2023.
This year’s finalists are Anna Gregg (soprano), Petra Wells (soprano), Anna-Helena Machlachlan (mezzo-soprano), Cathal McCabe (tenor), Ryan Garnham (baritone) with Doireann O’Carroll as our Peter Rankin Piano Intern.
Audiences will hear the finalists perform arias, songs and ensemble pieces and there's a short interval where tea and biscuits are provided while the jury deliberate, during which time the audience also vote for the winner of the Audience Prize.
