Vote for the Opera of the Year !
Opera – the complete art form – is the perfect combination of history, music and drama. This autumn, to celebrate a genre perfectly suited to television, Mezzo brings you “The Opera of the Year”, with Patricia Petibon as its patron.
Vote online, from November 3rd to December 6th ! “The Opera of the Year” is a series of twelve 4-minute programmes introducing a particular opera, its most famous arias, the plot, the characters, and the staging. We feature twelve of the most remarkable productions filmed by Mezzo over the past twelve months on twelve of the world's major stages. Mezzo invites you to choose the three operas you would most like to watch during the holiday season.
