NEW YORK —

A tenor from New Orleans has won the prestigious Beverly Sills Award that signals a star in the works.

Bryan Hymel (EE'-mehl) accepted the $50,000 prize Monday at the Metropolitan Opera.

The 33-year-old Hymel made his debut there in December. He jumped in to take over the daunting lead role in Berlioz's "The Trojans" from another singer.

The Sills award honoring the late American artist goes annually to a vocalist from 25 to 40 who has appeared in a featured role at the Met.

Hymel's powerful but lyrical voice already has triumphed at London's Covent Garden. His other major venues have included the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra.

He'll sing Puccini's "Madame Butterfly" at the Met next season.

He trained at Philadelphia's Academy of Vocal Arts.
