2022: Born in London, England, American-British lyric-dramatic coloratura soprano Julia Sitkovetsky comes to the Concours ready to move us with extreme high notes and her acclaimed agility.

Sitkovetsky has made a name for herself as the Queen of the Night from Mozart’s The Magic Flute, a signature role she has sung on stages in Dresden, Düsseldorf, Glasgow, and Berlin. This season marks her debut at the Komische Oper in Berlin, and she returns to the Semperoper Dresden and Deutsche Oper am Rhein.

Recently released on Chandos, Sitkovetsky’s latest album, Where Corals Lie, features songs by Edward Elgar. She was a Paris Opera Competition finalist, a Belvedere Competition semifinalist, and the 2017 winner of the Prix spécial at the International Clermont-Ferrand Competition.
