Works cannot be repeated in different rounds, unless the Jury asks the candidate to do so.
All candidates must submit at the beginning of the competition five bound sets with all the copies of your music, which will be used by the jury. Just to clarify: five identical notebooks with ALL the music you intend to sing in the competition ORGANIZED by each round (Preliminary, Semifinal and Final). Please write your name on the cover of each notebook. You must hand it in one day before your first performance in the competition.
Candidates will also provide the pianists with copies of the music to be performed. You must make sure that all copies are legible and adequate for performance. Pianists will not allow loose sheets.

Once the candidate goes over these limits, the jury will be entitled to ask the candidate to cut down the programme for that round. It is advised to think carefully how to distribute the time allowed for each round and to choose, if necessary, between an aria or its cabaletta in an operatic scene, for instance, when the scene exceeds the time limits.

As we are celebrating our 20th anniversary we would like to offer singers as many chances as possible to sing in the final gala concert. The music director will suggest some opera and zarzuela scenes to the competitors, so they can prepare them ahead of the competition.
The music director of the competition will provide award winners with the list of repertoire available for the concert with the Trujillo Symphony Orchestra.

The music director may also invite finalists who have not been awarded a prize to sing at the concert. You may also provide us with a fullscore and orchestral parts of different pieces you wish to sing at the concert, at the discretion of the music director.
It is compulsory for all prizewinners to perform these pieces, once they have been agreed with the Music Director. If they refuse to do so, the Committee may withdraw their prize.
