In 1998, to honor the centenary of the birth of Lotte Lenya (1898-1981), an extraordinary singer/actress and one of the foremost interpreters of the music of her husband, Kurt Weill (1900-1950), the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music established an annual Lotte Lenya Competition.
Lotte Lenya Competition recognizes talented singer/actors of all
nationalities, ages 19-32, who are dramatically and musically convincing
in repertoire ranging from contemporary Broadway scores to
opera/operetta, including the works of Kurt Weill.
prizes exceed $75,000; individual prizes range from $500 (semi-finals)
to $20,000 (finals). First round prizes include $500 "Emerging Talent"
awards and $500 to non-advancing semifinalists.
