The Metropolitan Opera Rising Stars Concert Series

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. Each concert features several young singers, accompanied by piano, in popular arias, duets and ensembles by opera's greatest composers.

"It gave me such an enormous sense of confidence..." — Susan Graham (NCA Finalist, 1988)

"It marked completely the start of my career." — Renée Fleming (NCA Finalist, 1988)
