OPERA NEWS Editor in Chief F. Paul Driscoll today announced the recipients of the 10th Annual Opera News Awards. This year’s honorees—Piotr Beczala, Ferruccio Furlanetto, Sondra Radvanovsky, Samuel Ramey and Teresa Stratas—will be feted at a black tie gala celebration on Sunday, April 19, 2015 at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Previous Opera News Award Winners Martina Arroyo, Gerald Finley and Susan Graham are among the presenters.
I’d love to attend … but … well …
Individual benefactor tickets to the Opera News Awards are available for $850; individual President’s Circle tickets at $1,200. In addition, Benefactor tables are available for $8,500; President’s Circle tables at $12,000.
And then I’d probably need to purchase a plane ticket too. So I suppose I’ll stay home. But congrats to the recipients!
