The Final

Petroc Trelawny and Danielle de Niese present the final of what is widely regarded as the world's greatest singing competition. From twenty young hopefuls, five have made it through to the final and for the winner a career of operatic stardom awaits. The formidable judging panel, including Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, will announce the overall winner and the Dame Joan Sutherland Audience Prize. Guiding us through the proceedings are Petroc's special guests - soprano Karita Mattila, winner of the first ever contest in 1983, and celebrated tenor Joseph Calleja. Josie D'Arby and Mary King take us behind the scenes to look at the pressures these young singers are going through.
