After its last event in 2002, the prestigious Concours Voix Nouvelles made a major comeback this winter. This competition, which offers fertile ground for spotting new vocal talent, has brought us opera stars such as Natalie Dessay, Karine Deshayes and Stéphane Degout. Organised by the Centre français de promotion lyrique (CFPL) and the Fondation Orange, the various knock-out rounds last winter sifted through some 607 candidates at auditions in the provinces and Paris. Just 47 singers were selected to go through to the semi-final at the Opéra-Comique on 10 February 2018. Previous winners whom you will have the pleasure of hearing at this concert include soprano Hélène Carpentier (who will also star in our production of Une Carmen here in May 1919), and baritone Anas Seguin (a very popular Figaro in a recent Barber of Seville for young people last December). The Théâtre des Champs-Elysées prides itself on also having spotted some promising young talent.

Concours co-organisé par le CFPL, la Fondation Orange et la Caisse des Dépôts
avec le soutien du Ministère de la Culture, du Ministère des Outre-Mer et de l’Adami`
