It was announced today that Welsh National Opera has been nominated for this year's Royal Philharmonic Society (RPS) Music Awards. The RPS Music Awards, presented in association with BBC Radio 3, are the highest recognition for live classical music and musical excellence in the United Kingdom.
Welsh National Opera has been nominated in the category of Opera and Music Theatre for their 2013 productions Lulu, Lohengrin and Paul Bunyan. This announcement follows Welsh National Opera's recent success at the TMA Awards for these same productions in October 2013.
Awards in 13 categories are chosen by eminent independent juries from the music profession and are unique in the breadth of musical achievement they span – from performers, composers and inspirational arts organisations to learning, participation and engagement. The list of winners since 1989 reads as a roll call of the finest living musicians. This year’s awards are for achievement in the UK during 2013. Winners will be announced at the RPS Music Awards ceremony on Tuesday 13 May, with a special RPS Music Awards programme broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on Sunday 18 May at 10pm.
