The International Opera Awards were founded in 2012 by a lifelong opera lover Harry Hyman. Each year sixteen awards are handed out by an international jury made up of twenty-one music critics and industry professionals.
Opera Magazine readers may vote for their favourites until 8 February.
Winners will be announced on 29 April 2019.
Last year Mariusz Treliński won the award for Best Director, while Piotr Beczała received the Best Male Singer statuette.
