Italy’s Associazione Nazionale dei Critici Musicali has announced the winners of the 39th annual Premio Abbiati. Soprano Asmik Grigorian is awarded the prize for Best Female Singer.
The honor follows several awards for the Lithuanian singer last year, including the International Opera Awards Female Singer of the Year, the Austrian Theatre Awards Best Leading Role, and Opernwelt Critic’s Choice Awards Singer of the Year.
Also featured in this year’s awards are mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Semenchuk and bass Mikhail Petrenko, both in the cast of Best Production winner Khovanshchina.
