The name of Éva Marton, the Hungarian dramatic soprano, is one recognised in every fine opera establishment everywhere in the world. Our institute considers it an honour to be the venue for both the start of this famous artist’s career and now, after a long and illustrious career, many visits to Hungary, and many performances on our stages, we will be home to her retirement. Ever since 2011, not only has she helped the Opera with her advice, but also graced us with gala concerts on two occasions (in 2014 and 2016). This year, in 2022, the OPERA Orchestra will be playing at both the final and the awards ceremony in the Academy of Music’s Grand Hall, conducted by the principal musical director. (Just a reminder of some singers who have made appearances at previous Marton Singing Competitions and then received contracts for several seasons from the Opera: Szilvia Vörös, Alexander Roslavets, Lilla Horti, Tetiana Zhuravel, Galeano Salas, Ildikó Megyimórecz, Anna Shapovalova, Zsuzsanna Ádám.)
