  • Park wasn’t bad in the Tchaikovsky (channeling Hvorostovsky) but I’m with the South Africans, Noluvuyiso and Bongani Justice. May they “channel” Pretty Yende who sewpt the boards in 2011.

  • My vote goes to Andrea Carroll – a small woman with a big voice. She sang a wonderful Gilda at Opera Santa Barbara in November 2014.

  • Id put my money on Darren Pene Pati whom Ive heard several times. He has a wonderful voice and great stage presence. Im sure all of them are absolutely tops and worth of the prize, really.
