Monday, October 24, 2016

From the stunning Salón Dorado at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, the winners of the Alejandro Cordero contest showcase their talent before heading to New York City where they will perform at Americas Society. Opera singers and students of the Instituto Superior de Arte del Teatro Colón talk about the importance of contests such as this one to launch their carreers in Argentina and internationally. "You learn a lot watching others and this privilege that we're going to have, to be able to go, is something I'm very grateful for," said soprano Mairin Rodríguez, one of the winners of the contest this year.
