In January, while the opera world was a-flutter with Pavarotti's appearances in Tosca at Covent Garden, Edgaras Montvidas found himself singing to the great man in his hotel room.
The flipside of the programme's prestige is that it turns an establishment such as the National Opera Studio, which has been offering high-quality postgraduate training for years, into a poor relation (though the idea in theory is that singers should attend the Studio and then go on to a programme like the Vilar one).
Some in the opera world feel the programme is just a little too good to be true; that, to some extent, economic motives lurk in the background.
