Welcome, Producers

in order to identify artists for future seasons, each producer has the same needs during this period: To hear artists in a way you can Trust and for artists to be able to present themselves best for future seasons. In NYIOP's Virtual Auditions, we have

found the solution.


For almost 20 years, NYIOP and its Founder, David Blackburn, has redefined how the opera industry auditions artists, having generated interest in thousands of singers.  With the NYIOP Virtual Auditions for 2020 we have again set the Industry Standard for how the opera business will hear artists worldwide, guaranteeing quality and reliability to decide your needs based on our auditions. 

Listen to David's message about the NYIOP Virtual experience.
