“The seventh annual OPERA NEWS Awards will be presented on Sunday, April 29 at The Plaza in New York City, paying tribute to five extraordinary artists who have made an invaluable contribution to the art form: sopranos Karita Mattila and Anja Silja, baritones Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Peter Mattei, and director Peter Sellars.
The official announcement of this year’s honorees appears in the September 2011 issue of OPERA NEWS, which is available on August 4 and features baritone Mariusz Kwiecien — the Metropolitan Opera’s new Don Giovanni — on its cover. All of the winners will be present at the gala awards dinner, which will feature celebrity presenters speaking about the awardees and introducing video performance clips. The April 2012 issue of OPERA NEWS will feature tributes to the five awardees, all distinguished members of the international operatic community.
The OPERA NEWS Awards were created in 2005. They recognize five individuals each year for distinguished achievement in the field of opera. Proceeds from the gala evening on April 29 will benefit the education programs of the Metropolitan Opera Guild.”
