Hello from Saint Petersburg!

I am Yadviga Kolosova, a young soprano singer.

I have decided to participate in International Hans Gabor Belvedere Singing Competition this year because it is great to share my love for singing with other people!

I would like to meet the marvelous Renata Tebaldi who dedicated her whole life to singing on the stage and made many of her admirers so happy with her music.

In 5 years… well I hope to see more of our world, and hear new voices and listen to new music!

Hello from Berlin!

I am looking forward to sing at the competition this year! I hope to have a lot of good impressions, meet great colleagues and show the world my love and passion for opera and singing!

I would love to meet Anja Harteros; she is a true artist on stage- genuine, generous and honest.

Life is full of surprises and I am really looking forward to explore all of them!

Hello, my dear Hans Gabor Belvedere Competition!!!

I expect from my participation at Belvedere Singing Competition a lot of good impressions and at least some chances for my career.

An artist who gives me always an example, is Great Ballet Dancer Rudolf Nurriev. I respect and  admire him not only as an artist, but also as very strong, disciplined and purposeful person. At that day, when I first time read about him, I've understood, that I want to have the same willpower like he had.

And I know that in four, five or six years, through my energy and luck I'll be everywhere.

The reason I entered the International Hans Gabor Belvedere Singing Competition is to gain experience, to present myself in the world of Opera, and of course, the fact that there are so many amazing opportunities!

After my graduation as a Bachelor of Music in Voice performance, this is the first Opera competition I'm taking participation in, and, of course I'm very excited to be a part of.

I'd very much like to meet Juan Diego Flórez. I think he needs no introduction in the world of Opera, and why I'd like to meet this Great singer is also self-explanatory. „smile“-Emoticon

Me in 5 years... let me check with my time machine. „smile“-Emoticon I'd like to see myself in the best place for my artistic expression and spiritual fulfillment - the almighty THEATER. Wherever. Every audience is an audience.

The reason why I did apply to Hans Gabor Belvedere Singing Comeptition is because I think I am ready to compete with the level and singers that this competition is standing for. 

I am 23 years old and think it´s time for me to try my luck. This is going to be my first competition ever and I am honoured to be a part of it. I really admire Olga Borodina´s technic and her breath support. Her phrasing ist more than amazing and her top leaves one breathless. I would like to have an opportunity just to speak with her and maybe get some tipps.  Me in 5 years: hmm that´s a hard question. I would say, ask me in 5 years :)

My name is Clementina Moreira. I am from Uruguay and have lived in the US for about 7 years.
I am participating at this competition to gain experience and exposure.
I would love to meet Placido Domingo and Cecilia Bartoli because any small piece of advice they have would be a life lesson.
In 5 years I hope to be singing roles with regional opera companies, auditioning, competing, and enjoying singing overall!
