About

The Metropolitan Opera’s Eric and Dominique Laffont Competition is a nationwide program designed to discover promising young opera singers and assist in their artistic and professional development. Each season, more that 1,000 singers compete for cash prizes in a series of auditions leading up to the Laffont Grand Finals Concert, in which a small group of finalists have the opportunity to launch a major operatic career. 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.

The Rocky Mountain Region competition includes finalists from the Arizona, Colorado-Wyoming, and Utah districts.
