bbc cardiff singer of the world

You can watch 'BBC Cardiff Singer of the World' wherever you are, as the competition is being streamed globally for the first time.

The competition is a showcase for opera and recital singers looking for a leg-up in their careers. Twenty singers from across the world take part.

The competition started on Sunday, and runs until next Sunday, June 21st.

The finals will be broadcast on BBC television and radio, but you can watch online thanks to a partnership with subscription service sonostream.tv.

You will have to pay though. One broadcast costs €4.99, or €14.99 for all six broadcasts throughout the week.

If you'd rather tune in and watch for free, the action will air on BBC Four and BBC Two Wales. The stages will be streamed on sonostream.tv at the same time as they're broadcast.

"We're really keen to make the best use of the licence fee and for many years we've had requests from music-lovers all over the world asking if they can see the competition for themselves," said David Jackson, artistic director of the competition.

"Now, for the first time, I'm absolutely delighted to say yes – if you have online access, Cardiff Singer can be yours to watch and enjoy.

"And with the value of the partnership reinvested into BBC programmes, it's great news for UK audiences who love BBC content."
