Dear Singers!

The mission of EVA project is to search for opportunities to develop cooperation between performers, opera agencies, as well as producers of leading world opera theaters and festivals, attracting experience and traditions of auditions for singers in leading theaters of the world in Ukraine, finding and supporting the most talented performers.

Our registration system for this audition makes it possible to select the most promising singers at the stage of video pre-selection by the agents of the companies TACT and EVA and to get them auditioned by the best European agents and producers of the leading theaters in the world. Our goal is not to audition singers for money, but to make it possible for the maximum number of singers to get contracts at these auditions. We do not give a guarantee of success from these auditions to anyone, because it depends only on your performance, but we will make maximum efforts so that the maximum possible number of contracts are signed at these auditions.

The most promising vocalists who have passed the pre-selection process will receive an advice from the director of the TACT agency on the repertoire choice that is recommended to perform for a particular producer or agent.

A small registration fee covers some of the costs incurred by us and makes it possible to arrange similar auditions in the future, inviting other well-known agents and producers. From our part, we remain as open as possible for you.

The opera auditions take place in two separate rounds:

I round

The pre-selection video stage gives TACT and EVA agents the opportunity to select the most promising candidates that can be recommended to perform in front of producers.

The decision on what candidates will be chosen for the main audition in the pre-selection process will be made in Germany and Ukraine, the process is closed to the public and participants and there are no consultations with the participants during the pre-selection.

Each participant who has passed the pre-selection will be able to see only his last name on the list of the participants. A participant who has not found his last name on the list is considered to be such that did not pass the pre-selection.

If you are not sure if you can perform in front of the agents and producers at the highest level, it is better to get a consultation from your teacher. *

* preliminarily from 50 to 80 singers will be selected
