The elite prepare to meet

Where has the time gone? La Cieca was just reminded this morning that on Tuesday the 2012 recipients of the F. Paul Driscoll Awards for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence (aka The Opera News Award) will be named. Though your doyenne has no details yet about which lucky opera types are to be lauded this year, the impending news does give her an idea. 

Between now and Monday, La Cieca challenges you, the cher public, to name the five opera personalities you think will win this year’s trophies. Just list the names in the comments section below, and whoever gets closest to the actual announcement will win a spectacular prize package of operatic recordings sure to delight all but the most discerning palates. All comments must be made by midnight, Monday August 1, and as usual La Cieca reserves the right to exercise her whims when declaring a winner or winners.
