Singers have started arriving in Cardiff from all over the world, and are now getting over jet lag and starting their preparations for the competition, which starts on Sunday with the first two Song Prize recitals.

Unfortunately Szymon Komasa from Poland is ill and has had to withdraw from the competition. We wish him well and a speedy recovery.

Szymon's place in Concert Two and Recital Two will be taken by Olga Kindler from Switzerland who is now planning her journey to Cardiff following the phone call she received last night. Find out more about Olga and see what she will be singing.

New on the website: broadcast details of the coverage of BBC Cardiff Singer of the World on BBC television, radio and online.
