Opera Prize 2021 – Results

‘May I say how very much we enjoyed the Opera Prize this year. All the singers were excellent, so it was difficult to choose our favourite’

‘I did things properly – Settled down to listen and watch with some smoked salmon sandwiches and good white wine, and found it the most absorbing two hours’

‘I liked the way the singers did their own introductions, and liked the variety of both singers and their choice of arias…congratulations on such a well presented show’
