Artist of the Year

Opera Idaho has been very fortunate to have some extremely talented artists with beautiful voices grace our stage. Opera Idaho donors at the Supporter Level ($250) or above, are entitled to vote for their favorite artist. The artist with the most votes will get a prize from Opera Idaho.

Did you hear the mystical island whisper in the air? Were you fooled by the Hungarian temptress? Were you captivated by the Diva turned murderess? Or perhaps the sorrows of a brokenhearted poet tugged at your heartstrings … no matter whom you preferred, it’s time to choose, and voting is now open! Voting closes on Monday, August 31.

Remember, to make your vote count, you must have donated at least $250 to Opera Idaho in the past 12 months. If you’ve not made a contribution yet, consider making one today.
