2010 NEA Opera Award for Philips Glass
Phillip Glass is one of four recipients of the 2010 Opera Award of the NEA. The award is $25,000. The Opera Honors of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) were launched three years ago, and has been awarded earlier to singers Leontyne Price and Marilyn Horne, composers John Adams and Carlisle Floyd, and conductors James Levine and Julius Rudel.
The awards ceremony, which is open to the public, will take place on 22 October at the Kennedy Center in Washington.
