“The Opera Stage auditions were the best run, most organised, most kindly, and most professional ones I have EVER done. You have made this tenor very happy!!”

Peter Furlong, Heldentenor

“Thank you so much for the feedback and the audio-files. I have found the whole Berlin-audition a very positive experience. The organisation was superb, the location was almost even better! Wow, what an amazing place! The Opera Stage-staff were really pleasant and put me at ease. I can almost say that I enjoyed myself, even though auditioning is always nervewracking.”

Nathalie Mees, soprano
