Delos artist Sondra Radvanovsky, who graces the cover of Delos CDs and DVDS, has been announced as a 2015 recipient of the Opera News Award for Distinguished Achievement along with Piotr Beczala, Ferruccio Furlanetto, Samuel Ramey and Teresa Stratas.
The OPERA NEWS Awards were created in 2005. They recognize five individuals each year for distinguished achievement in the field of opera. The award will be presented at an awards gala on Sunday, April 19, 2015 at the Plaza Hotel in New York City.
“Sondra Radvanovsky’s glorious voice is an instrument that makes no compromises. Her expansive soprano is tailor-made for Verdi’s most dramatic heroines, and her musicality and finesse are utterly right in the bel canto roles in which she has triumphed. Natural and affecting onstage, Radvanovsky is a modern singing-actress of the highest order, an artist whose singular sound hearkens back to a golden age of opera.” —Adam Wasserman, Opera News
