    "Armel Opera Festival started out as an extravagantly fresh, authentic and
    seemingly inconceivable idea of combining two operatic events; a
    singing competition and a festival; a bold innovation which has never
    been attempted before or since.
    The Festival’s original aim was - and still is - to promote opera, particularly
    contemporary opera while searching for adventurous young singers willing
    and able to sing and play the leading roles in the Festival’s productions,
    created by opera houses and opera companies from around the world.
    Since its foundation in 2008, Armel Opera Festival has staged 65 opera
    productions in 18 countries creating a myriad of connections across
    the world map of this most international genre. Our work has involved
    hundreds of artists working in various roles. The operas we have presented
    have reached thousands of people at our Festival theatres in Szeged and
    Budapest (Hungary), Vienna (Austria), and at our partner’s theatres in Avignon
    (France), London and Jersey (United Kingdom), and Pilsen (Czech Republic).
    Each year, all the productions we presented were streamed on
    the ARTE Concert (2010-2017), Mezzo Television (2008-2009)
    platforms, and broadcast on Hungarian National Television and on the
    Bartók classical radio music station.
    Over the last ten years, Armel Opera Festival has evolved in numerous ways
    and has meant many things to the many people we have worked with.
    We treasure their thoughts and impressions, which they have shared with
    us on the following pages."
