What is your favourite operatic aria? Is it “Nessun dorma” from Turandot? The Queen of the Night's aria from The Magic Flute? Or perhaps Dvořák's “Song to the Moon”? The “Our classics” concerts held last autumn were enthusiastically received, and this year we are continuing with a programme emphasising operatic music. 

The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service collaborates with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and the Icelandic Opera in an online election giving the general public to select their favourite arias. The arias that receive the most votes in the election will be performed in Eldborg hall at a special gala concert, a pre-season taste of the upcoming year at the ISO.
