Message from Lyndon Terracini AM, Artistic Director of Opera Australia

Many former winners of the Sydney Eisteddfod have become principal artists with Opera Australia and other major companies throughout the world. The competition enjoys an international reputation and is without doubt one of the most prestigious awards available to aspiring opera singers in the southern hemisphere.

In providing young singers with the chance to perform in public before a panel of expert adjudicators and receive constructive criticism, Sydney Eisteddfod make a significant and much appreciated contribution to the development of these young singers.

I applaud their efforts and extend my very best wishes to all involved in this competition.

Lyndon Terracini AM
