This year's South Bank Sky Arts Awards (now in its 23rd year) takes place on Sunday 7 July 2019 at the Savoy Hotel. The awards celebrate every genre of the Arts. This year, in the Opera category nominees are Welsh National Opera's premiere production of Elena Langer's Rhondda Rips It Up! [see my review], English National Opera's production of Gershwin's Porgy and Bess [see Ruth's review] and Garsington Opera's production of Verdi's Falstaff (you can see the production free on OperaVision).

Amongst the nominations for The Times Breakthrough Award is soprano Nadine Benjamin (who starred in the ENO Porgy & Bess and whose own company presented Puccini's Tosca earlier this year, see my review), alongside conductor Alpesh Chauhan, dancer Joseph Sissens and a number of others. The Classical category includes the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra's Debussy Festival, James MacMillan's Cumnock Tryst festival, and John Wilson's Bernstein Centenary celebrations.
