Here’s the word from Jerome Weeks at KERA’s “Art and Seek” blog, Peter Simek at D magazine’s “Front Row” blog, and the lead news headline from

While this year’s voting was difficult, TDO staging Boris Godunov was magnificent. I’ve only seen it once before — at The Met — and I am so proud to say that TDO’s production was just as exciting and vocally superb! So, with kudos to Laura Claycomb, my vote was for B.G.

In regard to the Maria Callas Debut Artist of the Year: I drove from Houston to see Laura Claycomb in Rigoletto. Stellar production, but I would have driven up to see Laura Claycomb in any production. Thank you, Dallas Opera!
