As part of the Bavaria-Quebec lyrical exchanges program, the State of Bavaria Quebec Office proudly presents the Jeunes Ambassadeurs Lyriques program by Théâtre Lyrichorégra.

As every year, the German evening in Montreal will offer an opportunity to listen to young international talents in opera arias or Lieder among the most famous in the classical repertoire. A guest singer from Bavaria will also be present (auditions currently taking place).

At the Gala Concert on Sunday, November 25, the most promising of the 2012 program will be offered sessions in lyrical theaters and operas in Europe by the Directors present in the International Selection Committee. This year Bavaria will have two representatives: Mr. Herrmann Schneider, Director of the Mainfranken Theater Wurtzburg, and Mrs. Juliane Votteler, Director of the Augsburg Theater.

In the past, Les Jeunes Ambassadeurs lyriques unveiled such talents as the soprano Marie-Josée Lord (laureate in 1996 and 2001), and enabled several young Canadian singers to go work in Europe.
