The Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions is a program designed to discover promising young opera singers and assist in the development of their careers.
The first Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions took place in 1954 in the Twin Cities. For over 60 years, the annual competition has helped launch the careers of countless young singers, including some of opera's greatest stars. Every season, over 100 former participants in the National Council Auditions appear on the Met roster. For over 60 years, volunteers have generously given of their time, money and support to assist young singers throughout the country in making it to the next level in their careers. The Metropolitan Opera is grateful for their commitment.
