The Spanish tenor Jorge Navarro-Colorado has been popping up in the blog ever since we saw him as Flute in Britten's A Midsummer Nights Dream and in Ned Rorem's Our Town with the Guildhall School in 2012. He has performed chorus and small roles/covers for several companies including Glyndebourne, Garsington & Wexford, and in 2017 he makes his role debut at a major international festival, and has been awarded the first Audition Oracle Singers Preparation Scholarship. The award of will pay for lessons and coaching to enable Jorge to prepare thoroughly for his role.

An anonymous sponsor has enabled a second award of £300 to help another singer from the shortlist of six. This will be awarded to British soprano Nazan Fikret to support her in the preparation of two role debuts, Euridice in Orfeo ed Euridice for Longborough Opera and Arasse in Hasse's Siroe for the Nederlandse Reisopera.

Audition Oracle is a website, founded by the singer Melanie Lodge, which has become a leading source for professional opera singers and auditions, enabling employers to find singers and singers to find auditions & opportunities, further information on Audition Oracle at their website.
