Who has not heard the story of the wonderful, unsurpassed and legendary Ada Sari...? Especially for her, Arturo Toscanini himself postponed the premiere of ‘The Magic Flute’ several times because he could not imagine this performance without the world's greatest coloratura soprano. Her artistic activity, lifestyle, adventures, stage creations and countless anecdotes are material not only for articles and books but also for many feature films!
After intense years of concert tours, after singing all of the most famous opera roles, having performed countless recitals and concerts, Ada Sari returned to Warsaw. Over the following years, she educated over a hundred students. The memory of her is alive to this day due to the festival and competition of her name which has been taking place since 1985.

Ewelina Osowska is the winner of the last edition, who like the patron of the competition is a coloratura soprano. She is a graduate of the Vocal and Acting Department of the I.J.
