The Instituto Superior de Arte del Teatro Colón is the training division of Teatro Colón, one of the leading opera houses in the Americas. It has been training artists for the world's opera and ballet stages for decades. For the ninth year, a group of talented young musicians - winners of the tenth Concurso Alejandro Cordero - will join Music of the Americas for an evening of opera favorites, including selections by Alberto Ginastera, continuing our celebration of the great Argentine composer's centenary. 

This year's winners, in a spotlight video produced by Luisa Leme.

Curious about what these young stars have been up to lately? Baritone Gustavo Feulién will star as Marcello in La bohème this fall with Wichita Grand Opera. Bel canto tenor Santiago Ballerini (2012) and baritone Alejandro Spies (2013) recently starred in Teatro Colón's production of Die soldaten, and Spies headlined both the world and US premiere productions of Hercules en el Mato Grosso, produced by the Centro de Experimentación del Teatro Colón. Ballerini will cover two tenor roles at the Metropolitan Opera in the 2016-2017 season, in Barber of Seville and Don Giovanni.
