Join us the last weekend of January on Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th for the annual Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions in our new location in Dixon Hall at Tulane University.
The New Orleans District Auditions will be Saturday, January 26, and are free and open to the general public. The winners of that audition will advance to the Gulf Coast Regional Auditions on Sunday, January 27. They will be joined by the finalists of the Houston, Florida, Puerto Rico and Mexico Districts. The Regional Auditions are $10 per person and may be purchased either at the door the day of the contest or via PayPal online. Members of AMICI, the New Orleans based support group for the Auditions, may attend for free. If you are interested in joining AMICI, please see our online application form.
This is the first time that the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions have been held in Mexico and the Gulf Coast Region is looking forward to welcoming their five triumphant singers to the January competition.
