OPERAFEST LISBOA 2021
20 AUG - 11 SEP

Instead of a Song Contest, we propose an Aria Contest, within Operafest Lisboa 2021, with eliminatory and final, in public staged performances and a jury of varied personalities from different backgrounds and Carlos de Pontes Leça Award!

Presently we are doing this award on a national basis, since there is an enormous need to support Portuguese contemporary opera, but we are looking for partners and European subvention to make Maratona Ópera XXI- festival and contest for contemporary opera grow international!
