Juan Diego Flórez receives award in Barcelona

The night of December 15 during a ceremony in the Hall of Mirrors to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the publication “Opera Now”, the Peruvian tenor received the Award of the same name to the best opera singer.

The tenor said he felt very honored by this distinction; being this the first time a person from outside Spain obtains it.
Florez, however, has indicated that he has always felt very close to the country, "and not just by language", because since he was a kid two of his idols have been the late Alfredo Kraus and Plácido Domingo.
