Here I am as Elizabeth in Griffin Candey's opera Sweets by Kate. Also pictured: soprano, Kathryn Frady. This is the professional premiere of the work, produced by Marble City Opera and, yes, we were performing behind the bar of an actual working restaurant.
Marble City Opera, like all opera companies, depends in part on the support of donors to support their operations. If you find it in your heart (or wallet) to make a donation, you can help to a scrappy start-up company that's making a big impact on its community.
Last year at this time, I was in tech week for Opera on the James's production of Carmen. I loved my time working for this company, and I really enjoyed the production.
This year, they are preparing for a Rigoletto. Shout out to my friends and colleagues in Lynchburg, VA. Wishing I was there to see you perform!
If you're anywhere nearby, check out this fantastic company doing really great work.
