Mezz appeal

Mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton has been named the winner of the 12th annual Beverly Sills Artist Award for young singers at the Metropolitan Opera.

    Very deserving. This award has a pretty good record, although I still can’t get over the fact that Susanna Phillips once won it. And Angela Meade, I believe. Boy, that career just hasn’t panned out. But Barton is the fabs. The way she sang the Dalila aria at the Tucker gala was pure golden age.
