The evening will celebrate the achievement of five artists who have made an invaluable contribution to the art form: tenor Jonas Kaufmann, conductor Riccardo Muti, soprano Patricia Racette, soprano Kiri Te Kanawa and bass-baritone Bryn Terfel.

The event will feature celebrity presenters speaking about the awardees and performance videos for each honoree. Tributes to the five awardees will also figure prominently in the April 2011 issue of Opera News, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this season.

Tickets are available through the Metropolitan Opera Guild at (212) 769-7009 or online at http://www.metoperafamily.org/guild/calendar/detail.aspx?id=4524.
