“The Metropolitan Opera Rising Stars Concert Series” offers fans across North America a rare opportunity to experience remarkable young artists on the cusp of extraordinary careers.

For more than 125 years, the Metropolitan Opera has been the artistic home of the greatest singers in the world. But the Met is also the launching pad for the opera stars of the future. Some of today’s leading artists got their first big break by winning the company’s national auditions, as members of the young artist program, or by catching the attention of Met talent scouts . Stephanie Blythe, Renée Fleming, Susan Graham, Deborah Voigt, Thomas Hampson, and Mariusz Kwiecien are just a few of the major artists to have come through the Met ranks.

Another generation of young singers is waiting in the wings to be discovered.
