Please join us on November 20th to witness aspiring young opera singers when they compete in the Utah District round of the Metropolitan Opera Eric and Dominique Laffont Competition. The competition is designed to discover promising young opera singers and assist in the development of their careers, and is sponsored by the Metropolitan Opera National Council, including members and hundreds of volunteers from across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Some of today’s greatest singers got their start in the auditions, including Renée Fleming, Susan Graham, Stephanie Blythe, Eric Owens, Lawrence Brownlee, Lisette Oropesa, Jamie Barton, Michael Fabiano, Anthony Roth Costanzo, Ryan Speedo Green, and Nadine Sierra.


Competitors, pianists, judges, and volunteers must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in advance of the November 20, 2021 competition date. Additionally, competitors will be asked to wear a face covering when not in the act of singing on the stage or in a designated warm-up space. Volunteers, judges, and audience members will be asked to wear face coverings while in the building. The public is invited to observe the competition in person, free of admission charge. Audience seating near the stage will be restricted.

We will continue to monitor health advisories and adjust, if advisable.
