The Carmen Mateu Young Artist European Award, Opera and Dance, initiated by the Castell de Peralada Private Foundation, aims to perpetuate the memory of Carmen Mateu by recognising the career of young artists in opera and dance to contribute to the development of their career and to the promotion and prestige of these disciplines throughout Europe. This edition focusses on dancers, specifically Classical and Neo-Classical Dance

Based on the Peralada Festival project, started by Carmen Mateu thirty-three years ago, and in the same spirit, the Carmen Mateu Young Artist European Award, Opera and Dance, has been created with the aim of being a cultural leader and benchmark to support creation in these fields.

Plácido Domingo has accepted the invitation of the Castell de Peralada Foundation to represent this award as its Honorary President.
