The Audition (DVD)

Don't miss The Audition--our thrilling behind-the-scenes documentary about the 2007 National Council Auditions. The Met's annual competition for young singers celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.

The feature-length documentary takes you behind the curtain at the Metropolitan Opera's National Council Auditions, where each year thousands of hopefuls face their fears and compete for a cash prize, the chance to sing on the Met stage -  and the opportunity to launch a major operatic career.
