The DEBUT Classical Singing Competition supports opera singers embarking on an international career. It is held every second year in the lovely Tauber Valley. DEBUT manages without any form of public funding and as such is completely independent. The competition was initiated by Dr. Manfred Wittenstein.
The purpose of the Wittenstein Foundation is to promote education and training as well as science and research. The focus is on clarifying interrelationships between people, technology, nature and society, as well as the economic, technological, social, and ecological requirements to safeguard our resources for future generations, and also on promoting an understanding of the role of business activities for society.
