 1. OPER! AWARDS

Germany enjoys one of the world’s richest classical music scenes, nowhere else does one find so many opera houses. Yet an award to honour the top international artists, publicly and within the setting of an awards show, has not existed so far. This is going to change on 21 September 2019! During a gala event at the Konzerthaus Berlin, OPER! magazine will for the first time, and from then on annually, bestow the OPER! AWARDS to the best international artists on and behind the stage across 20 categories.
