Donated by Lalita Carlton-Jones
Announced 9 May 2018
"One singer particularly commanded attention, both for the astonishing range and the excellence of his singing. Outstanding were his performances as David in Meistersinger at Covent Garden, in Gerald Barry’s Canada at the Proms, his fine work in concert and recital, and his unforgettable Hamlet in Brett Dean's opera at Glyndebourne. An exceptional year for an artist who rose to every challenge. The Award goes to Allan Clayton."
