Who’s going to be crowned Meistersinger 2022?

“Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg”, an international singing competition established by the Staatstheater Nürnberg, has been held every two years since 2016 in the original ‘city of the mastersingers’. It is aimed at young singers who have already gained professional experience or are enrolled at a music academy.

Due to the current situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic, the competition had to be cancelled in 2020. Planning for the competition in 2022 will be completed in the coming months.

All information on the competition, when available, can be found here:
