The Lotte Lenya Competition is a unique, international contest that recognizes talented young singer/actors who are dramatically and musically convincing in repertoire ranging from opera/operetta to contemporary Broadway scores, with a focus on the works of Kurt Weill. More than a vocal competition, the Lotte Lenya Competition is a theater singing contest that emphasizes wide-ranging repertoire and the acting of songs and arias within a dramatic context.


Previous winners have gone on to appear on Broadway, in major opera houses and festivals, international tours, regional theaters, and cabaret. A panel of distinguished musical theater and opera professionals will judge the competition.


Repertoire:  Contestants must prepare four selections:  one selection from the opera or operetta repertoire; two songs from the American musical theater repertoire (one pre-1968 and one from 1968 or later); and a theatrical selection by Kurt Weill. Detailed guidelines may be found at


Auditions: Each contestant must submit a preliminary video audition on DVD by 1 February 2013. Auditions must adhere to repertoire guidelines as detailed at After DVD submissions have been reviewed, some contestants will be invited to audition live in a round of semi-finals in New York City on 15-16 March 2013.


Competition Finals: 13 April 2013 at the Eastman School of Music, Rochester, New York, USA.


Eligibility: Open to singer-actors ages 19-32 who were born after 31 December 1980 and before 1 January 1994. Contestants may be citizens of any nation.


Application Deadline:   1 February 2013.
