Maestro Plácido Domingo’s Operalia, The World Opera Competition, agrees. The 2013 Operalia in Verona has also picked Ao Li as its Men’s Category First Prize winner.

For those unfamiliar with Operalia:

Plácido Domingo’s Operalia, The World Opera Competition, was founded in 1993 by Plácido Domingo to discover and help launch the careers of the most promising young opera singers of today. His goal is to attract singers of all voice tessituras and from every country in the world ranging from 18 to 32 years of age, to have them audition and be heard by a panel of distinguished international opera personalities, in the most prestigious and competitive showcase in the world.

“Operalia is like the Olympic games for the opera,” Domingo said in a press release issued by the competition. “Singers from all over the world compete to get to the finals and to win.”

The 20th Anniversary of Plácido Domingo’s Operalia, The World Opera Competition, was celebrated on August 25th 2013, at the Final Concert of 2013 competition in Verona.

Maestro Domingo’s Operalia, the most important competition of its kind in the world, has affirmed Maestro Ren’s impeccable artistic judgment.

Congratulations, Maestro Ren! Ritorna Vincitor!
