The NEA is out with its second round of Opera Honors. This year's winners are John Adams, Frank Corsaro, Marilyn Horne, Lotfi Mansouri, and Julius Rudel, which seems like a pretty blue-chip lineup to me.

Anne Midgette, in a bit of either subtle derision or simply breeziness (I genuinely can't tell) refers to this slate as "more of the usual suspects." Is that so wrong?

If I had said that, it would certainly be subtle (or not-so-subtle) derision. I would so love to see some of these honors go to candidates who aren't obvious. Not to mention, while I appreciate his administrative abilities, Mansouri's casting and repertory choices at SF Opera made me crazy, and not in a good way.
