ARIA is a talent contest for the new opera star of the Netherlands. What’s at stake? A unique scholarship at the National Opera. In this eight-part series, 10 candidates are put through their paces every week, by challenging vocal assignments. They are judged by an expert jury. The candidates are accompanied by a 40-piece live orchestra led by conductor Leonard Evers in a magnificent setting in the Gashouder on the Westergasterrein in Amsterdam. Presentation is in the hands of Dionne Stax.

ARIA was aired in 2021 and 2021 on NPO 1 with Omroep Max.
