Congratulations to Joshua Blue, Tenor on receiving the first Lotos Foundation James McCracken and Sandra Warfield Opera Prize! The award is given to a deserving singer selected by a nominator. The beloved Metropolitan Opera star Marilyn Horne has graciously agreed to serve as nominator for this year's prize, naming tenor, Joshua Blue, as the award's inaugural recipient. Mr. Blue is currently in his second year as a Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist with the Washington National Opera. He was a semi-finalist of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions in 2018. Mr. Blue earned his bachelor's degree from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and graduated from The Juilliard School with a master's degree, studying voice with Dr. Robert C. White, Jr.
The Lotos Foundation, with a philanthropic mission of encouraging and supporting the creative arts and sciences, will bestow eight grants to in-school and after-school programs across New York City, as well as award six monetary prizes to creative artists at the outset of their careers across a broad spectrum of the arts. This year’s awards include a new prize, The Lotos Foundation James McCracken and Sandra Warfield Opera Prize, honoring the late internationally-acclaimed American tenor and mezzo-soprano. Ms. Warfield and Mr. McCracken, who were married, were both mainstays at the Metropolitan Opera. In its obituary of Mr. McCracken, the New York Times stated he was, “The most successful dramatic tenor yet produced by the United States and a pillar of the Metropolitan Opera during the 1960s and 1970s.” The Lotos Foundation was established in 2000 by the leadership of the Lotos Club, which was established in New York City in 1870 as a Literary Club and has since grown to embrace all the creative arts and sciences. The Foundation pursues the philanthropic mission of encouraging and supporting the creative arts and sciences. The Lotos Foundation is committed to encouraging gifted students in the Fine and Performing Arts and Sciences in New York City through grants to in-school and after-school programs across the city’s diverse populations and neighborhoods, as well as awarding six monetary prizes to creative artists at the outset of their careers across a broad spectrum of the arts.

A special tribute for Frederica Von Stade. Congratulations on this benchmark anniversary with The Metropolitan Opera.
Congratulations to mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade, who made her Met debut on this day 50 years ago as the Third Spirit in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. In a career spanning more than 30 years, von Stade sang 300 performances with the company, including as Cherubino in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro (pictured here), one of her signature roles.

Check out this adorable memory of IMG Artists Renée Fleming and Rod Gilfry! Still singing together after all these years. #operalife
With the fantastic Rod Gilfry in 198(cough), um...our student days, in Verviers, Belgium, and last night at the The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for Kevin Puts beautiful The Brightness of Light with the National Symphony Orchestra. Frankly, I think we both look better without bangs.
Congratulations Hera Hyesang Park and Jarrett Ott on their performance with New York Choral Society of the Brahms “Requiem”: “Soprano Hera Hyesang Park and baritone Jarrett Ott were stellar without grandstanding in their respective turns: Park in the lovingly maternal fifth movement that Brahms wrote after his mother’s death; Ott in the third and sixth movements, the former all earthly repentance and the latter brimming with hope for redemption. Ott’s bracing first turn, beginning with “Lord, teach me/ that I must have an end,” was a fresh spark after the too-relaxed pastoralism of the second movement.” Read more here: https://newyorkclassicalreview.com/2019/11/visions-of-mortality-by-ticheli-and-brahms-vie-in-new-york-choral-society-program/.
Congratulations Ying Fang on your Lyric Opera of Chicago debut! “All three of the women are fine singers.... The revelation here, though, is Chinese soprano Ying Fang, who, in her Lyric debut, displays all the qualities needed for a major career. She possesses an appealingly natural stage presence and charmingly conveys the waifish innocence and allure of Zerlina. Perhaps most impressive, though, is her singing. With a nuanced, translucent and often transfixing voice, Fang is able, even in her softest moments, to powerfully project even in the vast expanse of the theater.” Read the full review here: https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/11/15/20966948/don-giovanni-review-lyric-opera-chicago-robert-falls-lucas-meachem.

Congratulations to Hera Hyesang Park on her debut as Amore in Gluck’s “Orfeo ed Euridice” which opened on Sunday at The Metropolitan Opera. The New York Times writes: “The performance seemed to awaken once the god of love, Amore, here the bright-voiced soprano Hera Hyesang Park, arrived: Winged and wearing a peach-colored shirt, floppy pants and sneakers, she descended (on wires) from the heavens. In her vibrant singing and sassy manner, Ms. Park brought a touch of jaded exuberance to the proceedings: This Amore admits to being baffled by the romantic entanglements of mortals.” Read the full review here: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/21/arts/music/met-opera-orfeo-review.html.

Congratulations to Ewa Płonka on her soprano role debut as Tosca! See a clip from her haunting "Vissi d'arte" below.
DC Metro Arts raves: "Her warm soprano grounds the dramatics required of Tosca in a believably earth piety. Płonka’s performance—vocal and otherwise—brings a much-needed realism to this role which relies on a singer’s ability to emote boldly in all directions... it’s difficult not to feel a tug at your heartstrings during Płonka’s rendition of “Vissi d’arte.” This is one of those performances you’d like to snatch out of the air and hold close before it fades away and disappears completely."
