On November 2-11, St. Petersburg will host the 6th Rimsky-Korsakov international contest of young opera singers. Its organizers are the Russian Culture and Cinema Ministry, the St. Petersburg administration's culture committee and the Mariinsky (Kirov) Theater.

According to the theater's press service, this year about 130 opera singers aged 18-32 from different regions of Russia, the CIS and other countries will take part in the contest.

The jury will comprise directors of the world's largest opera theaters, famous singers and vocal teachers, as well as heads of international opera festivals. Vladimir Atlantov, celebrated Russian tenor, now living in Vienna, will head the jury.

The winner will receive a special prize, made after the draft of famous jeweler Andrei Ananov, an Easter egg with a portrait of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), Russian classic and founder of a composer school.

The contest's hearing and gala concert will be held at the city's main concert stages: the Mariinsky Theater and the Shostakovich Academic Philharmonic Hall.

The first contest of young opera singers was held in St. Petersburg in 1994 to mark the 150th anniversary since Rimsky-Korsakov's birth. It is held once in two years.

Laureates of the previous contests were Vasily Gerello, Anna Netrebko, Nadezhda Serdyuk, Lyubov Petrova, Daniil Shtoda and many other singers who have now become the pride of the Russian opera school.
