Download the attached brochure to find out more about the excellent travel package to Karlsruhe in early October to see the semi-finals and finals of the Singing Competition along with a performance of Die fliegende Holländer.  Various tours are also on offer.

Wagner lovers are cordially invited to Karlsruhe from 1-4 October 2015 to attend the semi-finals and finals of this highly prestigious singing competition.

All the competitors are put forward by Wagner Societies and represent the finest young Wagner singers in Europe.  The Wagner Society is proud to support Kirstin Sharpin, who we have nominated as a contestant.  We wish her ever success and will keep you posted as to her progress.

Palco Reale, the well-known German cultural tour organisers, are in charge of the programme and have put together a wonderful and cost-effective package for travellers.  There are several local tours on offer, along with tickets for the competition and a performance of Der fliegende Holländer at the Badisches Staatstheater.  In addition, participants can choose from a range of hotels at varying prices.

Detailed information can be found in the brochure below.  Participants will be responsible for their own travel arrangements to Karlsruhe.

Helena Dix, our candidate for the last competition, held in 2012, made the semi-finals and those of us who went along to support her had a wonderful time in this charming city.
