Finally won a competition!
I have finally won an international competition at the international Clermont-Ferrand's Voice Competition. I won 1st Prize for the role of Nedda and the ADAMI prize for best interpretation of Italian Repertoire!
As a bonus I received the prize from the amazing Soprano Inva Mula herself who was the head of the jury and a beautiful Nedda, we had a great conversation and she said very praising and interesting things about my singing which was perhaps the nicest part of it all.
This victory means so much to me on a personal level and was a nice rewards for so much time, preparation, travel and money invested into competitions in the last 10 years. Competitions took me to many semi-finals and finals all over the world like in Zaragoza Spain for the Montserrat Caballe Competition, Capetown South Africa for the Belvedere Competition, Tbilisi Georgia for the Opera Crown Competition, Avignon France for the Grand Opéra d'Avignon Competition, Riga for Belvedere or again Targu Mures Romania for the Zeani Competition last spring.
