Applications for the Met Opera Auditions 2021 for Colorado/Wyoming, Arizona and Utah are now being taken at the National Office. To apply, please visit
This page is for the Colorado-Wyoming District in Denver. This is for general information only for people who may be interested in applying for the 2021 Auditions!
Applicants may choose to enter any District audition across the country regardless of whether they are a resident of the area. District winners must compete in the Regional Finals of the Region in which they were District winners. Because we allow singers to audition in the National Council District of their choice, there will be certain unavoidable instances when a panel includes a judge with a connection to one or more contestants. While we work to avoid this circumstance, please be assured that judges are required to recuse themselves from deliberations about singers with whom they have previously worked.
