Growing up in WA state, there is no higher musical goal than singing with Seattle Opera… … And I made my debut last Sunday.
Over the next weeks, my extended family and childhood mentors will all be coming to see my perform Léïla in The Pearl Fishers by Bizart (sung in French).
You can see from above, that the rehearsal process was an absolute joy. Seattle Opera treats their artists so well! Plus, we have a fantastic artistic team preparing the music with utmost attention to detail- but still being nice when they say “don’t sing flat here.” :-)
We also can’t help but look great in the production with costumes by fashion guru, Zandra Rhodes. (Mostly) She and I talk about the costumes in this sneak-peak below.
