The make up of the jury will be established by the Director of the Paris Opera. Auditions are not open to the public.
All candidates must prepare a selection of five opera arias in three different languages. One of the three languages must be French. The arias must be memorized and candidates must bring the scores required for the accompanist. The Atelier Lyrique provides all candidates with an accompanist. Candidates may be accompanied by their own personal pianist.
The candidate will choose and introduce the first aria. The jury may listen to all or part of a second aria selected from the list prepared by the candidate.
The results will be made known after the jury has deliberated, on the day of the finals.
Selected candidates undertake to make themselves wholly available to the Opera for the entire duration of their contract unless they have written authorization to the contrary.
A candidate who has previously signed a contract that could prevent him / her from participating in a Paris Opera production will be eliminated.
All decisions of the jury are final.
There are no vacancies for coaches. Therefore there will be no auditions for the 2013-2014 season.
