October 14, 2009|Associated Press

Spanish tenor Placido Domingo on Tuesday received the first $1-million Birgit Nilsson Award at a ceremony in Stockholm.

Domingo, who won the prize for his "unrivaled" contributions to the world of opera, accepted the award from King Carl XVI Gustaf at the Royal Swedish Opera.

Domingo said he would use the prize money to set up a specific Birgit Nilsson category for Wagnerian singers within the framework of his opera competition Operalia.
