This year, the OPER! AWARDS will skip the usual competition and award presentation. The assessment period – the season 2020/21 – had been even more affected by a long lockdown due to the corona pandemic than the season before. For over six months, no performances were taking place in front of live audiences. At best, a few opera houses offered selected productions online via stream. Yet streaming is a poor basis on which to assess, for example, a “Best Singer”.

Still, the OPER! AWARDS jury has had a close look at the 2020/21 season. On 30 November 2021, we would therefore like to invite you to check out our discussions here and on Facebook. The next regular OPER! AWARDS will take place in autumn 2022.
