Seattle lauds Lindsey

Kate Lindsey, the Richmond-bred mezzo-soprano, has received an artist of the year award from the Seattle Opera, for her preparation and performance of the title role of Darin Aric Hagen's "Amelia," introduced by the company in May. "Her performance as Amelia, including her intense preparation, represents an ideal for young American artists," said Speight Jenkins, general director of the Seattle Opera.

The company gave an artist of the year award to Stephen Wadsworth, who was stage director of both "Amelia" and an August 2009 production of Wagner's "Tristan und Isolde."
