The NEA Opera Honors happened on Saturday. You can read about them here.
Also worth noting is a special tribute video to Lotfi Mansouri which can be viewed here.
There's also an hour+ video interview with Lotfi but we don't have time to watch it right now. Perhaps you do.
There are also videos for all the other recipients here. These include John Adams, Frank Corsaro, Marilyn Horne and Julius Rudel.
