E.Amartuvshin: My wish came true


Soloist of the State Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet E.Amartuvshin participated in the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition and took the  Audience Prize last Sunday. He returned to Mongolia on Tuesday. Below is a brief interview with the world-class vocalist.

Congratulations. Was your trip home good?

I returned to my home country on June 23. I am very happy. I want to express my gratitude to the State Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet and my family.

Over 400 professional singers competed in the competition. You were selected as one of top five participants. How did you feel?

In the first stage of the competition I sang “Nemico Della Patria”. I think I sang well, however I did not express myself fully. BBC Cardiff Singer of the World is one of the biggest competitions in the world. I am very excited that I am one of the world’s top singers.

We heard before that you wanted to sing on the stage of BBC Cardiff Singer of the World.

Yes. My wish came true. No Mongolians have participated in this competition before. I am proud of myself that I promoted Mongolia around the world. But I am not the only one behind my success. It is not only my career, but the world-recognized ability of Mongolian opera singers.

The organizers of the competition once said that your voice is very unique and hadn’t been heard before in the competition’s history?

Singers from Canada, Turkey, Belarus, and South Korea were selected as the top five participants with me. A singer from Belarus, Nadine Koutcher, was crowned BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, winning the competition’s trophy. Jongmin Park won the Song Prize of the competition. Every singer has a unique voice. I valued all the participants and am proud of them.
