Bryn is one of the winners of this year's Opera News award.

Conductor Riccardo Muti, sopranos Kiri Te Kanawa and Patricia Racette, bass-baritone Bryn Terfel and tenor Jonas Kaufmann have won this year's Opera News Awards.

The five will be honored at a dinner on April 17 in New York, with proceeds going to the Metropolitan Opera Guild's education programs.

Muti, former music director of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Milan's Teatro alla Scala, made his Metropolitan debut this year conducting Verdi's "Attila" and becomes music director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra this season.

Terfel and Kaufmann are to star in a new production of Wagner's Ring Cycle that starts with the first two installments at the Met this season.

Te Kanawa made her Met debut in 1974, and Racette has sung at the Met since 1995.

Here's the link to Opera News announcement.

http://www.operanews.com/operanews/templates/content.aspx?id=16734

"Whether it be as Mozart's Figaro, Hans Sachs, Sweeney Todd or Falstaff, Bryn Terfel has become one of the great performers of our era by providing audiences with truth, charm and visceral thrills every time he steps on stage. His voice expansive yet capable of matchless subtlety affirms opera as a vital art in an era of theatrical trickery and vocal homogenization."
