Stephen Llewellyn is one cool dude!

Stephen Llewellyn, Portland Opera’s official blogger and a lawyer by trade, recently won the #Operplot’s twitter contest, claimed the top prize and then gave it to a music teacher he has never met. How cool is that!

Today’s Washington Post has the entire scoop, plus quotes from Llewellyn and the Washington D.C. schoolteacher who will receive his prize.

In case you don’t have time to read it, here’s the outcome as quoted from the article:

Priscilla Barrow, who has taught music in D.C. public schools for 22 years, learned Monday, out of the blue, that she will be going to the final performance of “Turandot” at the Washington National Opera on June 4 and, the next night, the company’s annual Opera Ball at the German Embassy. In a ball gown provided by the opera’s costume shop.

Llewellyn has also posted his account of how this all happened. Click here.

Hats off to a fellow whose generosity is an inspiration to the rest of us!
