It has just been announced that Lise will be honoured at next year’s Opera News Awards, alongside fellow soprano Erin Morley, and tenor and educator George Shirley.
The Editor In Chief of Opera News, F Paul Driscoll said: “We are proud to honor a trio of distinguished artists—Lise Davidsen, Erin Morley and George Shirley—who represent the highest level of achievement in opera.”
The Awards will take place on Sunday April 16th at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Individual tickets and tables (the proceeds from which benefit the education programs of the Metropolitan Opera Guild) are available at: www.metguild.org
Opera News has been published since 1936, and this is their 18th set of Awards. The monthly magazine has the largest circulation of any classical-music magazine in the United States, and has won six ASCAP–Deems Taylor Awards for excellence in music journalism.
