The name that catches the eye in Oslo’s Queen Sonia International Competition finals is Meigui Zhang, a Chengdu-via-Shanghai soprano who is on the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program at the Met.

Here are the last 6:
Stefan Astakhov,
Theodore Browne,
Sergey Kaydalov,
Adam Kutny,
Natalia Tanasii
and Meigui Zhang.

    After listening live to all 12 participants in the semifinals, I remain utterly shocked at the decision of the jury. Of all chosen singers, only Natalia Tanasii fully deserved to be on that list. Otherwise, the fact that Julia Muzychenko didn’t make it to the finals makes me wonder about how the jury made their decision.
