The Biggest Singers' Stock Exchange in the World

Since the beginning of his artistic career, Hans Gabor, founder and for many years head of the Vienna Chamber Opera, has been preoccupied with the discovery and promotion of young vocal talents. Many a later opera star first entered the spotlight under his direction, which meant the world to the singers. From these efforts arose the successful concept of a singing competition, the beginnings of which extend back to the year 1982.

In 1988 the competition, which had previously been reserved for opera, was expanded by the operetta category.

The accompanists are also able to breathe competition air, in 2000 the Hans Gabor singing competition was expanded by a competition for lied accompanists. The competition takes place exclusively on Bösendorfer pianos.
