Artistic director Aviel Cahn accepted the award in person and responded saying "A great honour and the icing on the cake for a decade of hard work." At the end of this season, he will be heading for Geneva, where he will become the general director of Le Grand Théâtre de Genève. A new book about his directorship at Opera Vlaanderen, Opera Out of the Box, was recently published by Stockmans Art Books.
