2025 Birgit Nilsson Prize

2025 is the year of the next Birgit Nilsson Prize to be announced in May, followed by the official ceremony and musical celebration in October in Stockholm.

Founded in tandem with the Stipendium which Birgit Nilsson created to support young singers, the Birgit Nilsson Prize pays tribute to an active artist or institution which has contributed an important chapter to music history. Her legacy lives on just as she intended – giving incentive to young musicians at the start of their careers and reminding us of the importance of a lifetime dedicated to classical music.

Awarded approximately every three years, the Prize was first presented in 2009 to Plácido Domingo, followed by Riccardo Muti (2011), the Vienna Philharmonic (2014) Nina Stemme (2018) and Yo-Yo Ma (2022).
