I am now in the MOST enviable position for all young singers in the world.
At LA Opera, Placido Domingo himself selects a small number of young singers, and he and the staff mentor and coach them for a period of 1-3 years. To have been selected for this program is not only a huge honor, but also the greatest opportunity yet of my operatic career.
Over the next years, I’ll be learning from the living legends of opera, and occasionally (eek!) even performing with them. In addition to regular repertoire, I’ll also be focusing on the Russian repertoire and language (a particular passion of mine).
Also- this means I get to LIVE in Los Angeles, the capitol of the entertainment industry. I look forward to understanding what makes LA Opera a thriving company, focused on both classical and modern opera today.
