Soprano Angela Meade was recently named the seventh recipient of the Metropolitan Opera’s Beverly Sills Artist Award. Open to singers aged between 25 and 40 who have already featured in solo roles at the Met, the $50,000 annual award is the largest of its kind in the United States. Thirty-four-year-old Meade follows in the footsteps of baritone Nathan Gunn and mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, who won the award in 2006 and 2007 respectively.

Meade made her Met debut in 2008 as Elvira in Verdi’s Ernani. She currently reprises that role in a revival production in New York, which will be broadcast in 54 countries and 80 UK cinemas on February 25 as part of The Met:Live in HD season.
