from 23 to 28 August 2022
Named after the Italian composer Pietro Antonio Cesti, who made Innsbruck a centre of Italian opera north of the Alps in the mid-17th century, the Cesti Competition has become one of the world's most important platforms for young singers with a special talent and training for the extremely diverse baroque opera genre.
The final will take place on 28 August as a public concert at the Haus der Musik Innsbruck. The special prizes include participation in the production Barockoper:Jung at the Innsbruck Festival 2023.
