ONE of the stars of Eugene Onegin, which opens Garsington Opera&rsquos 2016 season tonight (Friday), has been honoured with the Royal Philharmonic Society&rsquos singer of the year award.

The citation read: “The winner stood out for a remarkably wide-ranging year of song, in particular his exemplary performances of British 20th and 21st century repertoire, including his own compositions. A consummate artist and a singer with whom composers and fellow musicians find it a joy to work. The award goes to Roderick Williams.”

Garsington Opera at Wormsley runs until Sunday, July 17. The other productions are Mozart&rsquos Idomeneo, Rossini&rsquos L&rsquoitaliana in Algeri and Haydn&rsquos The Creation.
