The Arop 2020/2021 award winners are Bleuenn Battistoni and Guillaume Diop for the ballet Prize and Kseniia Proshina and Fernando Escalona for the opera Prize.

For the 2020/2021 season, the members decided to award the ballet prizesto Bleuenn Battistoni, sujet, for her performances in La Belle au bois Dormant(Rudolf Noureev) and to Guillaume Diop, coryphée, for his performances in Roméo et Juliette (Rudolf Noureev).The opera prizes go to soprano Kseniia Proshina and countertenor Fernando Escalona, who are both in residence at the Paris Opera Academy. They were distinguished for their performances during concerts of the Academy and their roles of Lucia in Le Viol de Lucrèce by Britten and of the second aunt in Yvonne, Princesse de Bourgogne by Philippe Boesmans.

Since 1986, AROP awards each season both a young female and a young male dancer from the Paris Opera Ballet who performed important variations of the repertoire on stage. The ballet prizes are backed for ten years by the generous support of Mrs Jeannine Auber, who wished to encourage new generations of dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet and to pass on her passion for dance, thanks to the legacy she left to AROP.

Since 1998, AROP awards the opera prizes to both a female singer and a male singer from the Paris Opera Academy, based on their performances and concerts during the past season. AROP – The Friends of the Paris National Opera, supports the Paris Opera projects and promotes emerging artists of the Paris Opera.
