Operalia is won by … past winners

Norman Lebrecht - Slipped discThe male prize in Placido Domingo’s Operalia last night went to Keonwoo Kim, winner of the 2015 the Montreal International Musical Competition. The female prize went to Elsa Dreisig, runner-up in the 2015 Queen Sonja Competition and winner of other prizes. Both are considerable talents, one Korean, the other French. But there are simply too many competitions and the same faces and voices turn up again and again. There ought to be a rule that past winners cannot enter further competitions. However, like Russia at the Olympics, no-one has the guts to act on principle.
