Each year, North America’s most promising new opera talent begin their journey to the fabled stage of the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center in New York during these regional auditions. The Metropolitan Opera holds National Council Auditions throughout the country and Canada in order to discover promising young singers, give singers from around the country a chance to be heard by the major opera companies of the United States and Canada, and find potential participants for the Lindemann Young Artist Development program, an opera training program sponsored by the Met.
