For the 7th consecutive year, the Cultural Association Archipelago has the honor and the pleasure to organize the edition of the “International Opera Competition Jole De Maria”.

In 2013 it was held in Galati Mamertino, in the province of Messina, in a cool and crowded square, staged in the places of Jole De Maria’s childhood and, for this reason, particularly applauded and followed.

In 2014 and 2015, the Contest was held in Monterotondo, small, pretty, very close to Rome, in the beautiful surrounding countryside.

In 2016, the city that welcomes us is Guidonia Montecelio, the third most populous of Lazio after Rome and Latina. The old part of Montecelio is located on a hill while the modern town lies in the valley, not far from Tivoli and its fountains as well as from the famous Villa Adriana. 
In 2017 and 2018, the Contest was held i Tivoli, the beautiful city that hosts us this year too.

We have been "travelling" together, with opera singers of all vocal registers: soprano, mezzo-soprano / contralto, countertenor, tenor, baritone, bass and from all over the world ... Germany, Angola, Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Cyprus, South Korea, Croatia, Spain, United States, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Japan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine and of course Italy.
For the winners were awarded cash prizes, also planned for this year.

In a happy continuity, direction and organization of this event will be given back in the hands of, respectively, Irene Bottaro and Eleonora Vicario. Directed Final concert: Giorgio Moscatelli. To chair, a Jury of five masters of international opera.

The competition will be divided into 3 phases: the 9 May will take place the preliminaries, semi-finals May 10 and May 11 the evening will be dedicated to the public concert, during which the finalists will perform. 
At the end, an artistic personality of our country will award the prizes to the winners. 

May 8, try with pianist: M° Leonardo Angelini and M° Fabio Centanni.

As was the case in previous years, the competition is pleased to support the research against cancer. 
Everyone can make their offer in cash and, in return, have books and records.
