SHINING STARS OF THE OPERA WORLD
The winner of the 7th Leyla Gencer Voice Competition in 2012, the 21 year-old Egyptian soprano Fatma Said has already made a name for herself, performing most recently in the Human Rights Day Concert held for the first time at the United Nations in Geneva. After winning the 6th Leyla Gencer Voice Competition, South African soprano Pretty Yende went on to collect all the major awards at the Operalia and launched on a dazzling career that spans the major opera houses from the Metropolitan to La Scala. The Leyla Gencer Voice Competition's previous winners such as the Georgian sopranos Nino Machaidze and Anita Rachvelishvili, Argentinean tenor Marcello Alvarez and Yugoslavian baritone Nikola Mijailovic are now counted amongst the brightest stars of the opera world.
