The NEA Opera Awards and National Opera Week is right around the corner.
For those of us in sunny Southern California, actually getting to hear the awards might be hard to do since as far as we can tell, no radio station within range is airing the ceremony.
But don't despair, you can still listen in live, online and since you're reading this, we know you have internet access. Besides, do people still listen to radio over the airwaves?
The Los Angeles Times Culture Monster blog has all the information on the program, and how you can listen in online. You can read it here.
Our good friend Lotfi Mansouri will be honored during this ceremony. Lotfi returnd to us to direct February's Nabucco.
