Welcome one and all to this incredible season of fall! I have had a lot of great birthdays but this one takes the cake.

This September I stepped in to sing Marguerite de Valois in a new production of LES HUGUENOTS at Opéra National de Paris, which has been one of the most exciting roles I’ve ever done. As those performances come to a close, I’ll be singing my first Adina in L’ELISIR D’AMORE also at the Opéra National de Paris. I certainly love Donizetti and Meyerbeer is also a rare treat.

This fall finishes with a new production of RIGOLETTO at the Teatro dell’opera di Roma, which I am very excited about. Gilda is one of my favorite roles. I’m so happy to be able to share this beautiful repertoire with such incredible theatres and audiences. The pleasure is always mine, and I’m so grateful to you all for following along with me, keeping me grounded and strong.

Thank you so much for all your support.

☀️ Welcome to my Summer 2018 Newsletter!

It’s summer time and I am so lucky that I get to spend it singing some of my absolute favorite music in all of my repertoire!  So it feels like Christmas came early this year.  

LUCIA in Madrid has been a phenomenal experience, and a major success for all involved in this production.  Hope you can watch the broadcast on July 7th at  9:30 pm, CET!  It will be live on Facebook, and also on Palco Digital and Operavision.  

Soon after, I head to Pesaro to make my debut at the illustrious Rossini Opera Festival as ADINA in Rossini’s one act comic opera.  The bonus for me is that I will also be doing a concert of some of my favorite arias, at the Teatro Rossini on August 14th.  

Then I head to the magical city of Venice to make my debut at Teatro La Fenice as Violetta in LA TRAVIATA, in Robert Carsen’s production, with the premiere on August 25th.  

August 26th, I’ll pop over to Verona to participate in their Verdi Opera Night, singing the 2nd act of RIGOLETTO.  

Hope you can join us in one of these amazing places, and enjoy a true Italian Opera summer like no other!

GAETANO DONIZETTI (1797 – 1848)
Prendi, per me sei libero
From “L'elisir d’amore, Act II”
Libretto by Felice Romani
------
🎶
Prendi, per me sei libero,
resta nel suol natio.
Non v’ha destin sì rio
che non si cangi un dì...resta.

Qui dove tutti t’amano,
saggio, amoroso, onesto.
Sempre scontento e mesto
no, non sarai così.
Ah no, non sarai così.

GAETANO DONIZETTI (1797 – 1848)
Take it, through me you are free
From “The Elixir of Love, ACT II”
Translation by Lisette Oropesa
------
🎶
Take it, through me you are free,
stay in the land of your birth.
There is no destiny so bitter
that cannot be changed one day…stay.

Here where everyone loves you,
wise, loving, honest.
Always unhappy and melancholy
no, you will not be that way then.
Ah no, you will not be that way then.

🌷Welcome to my Spring 2018 Newsletter!

I’m so excited to bring you some updates on what’s going on this upcoming season, as well as some highlights from the past few months. It was wonderful to be a part of Orphée et Eurydice at L.A. Opera, which was a lovely production in conjunction with the Joffrey Ballet. It was fun being in rehearsals with the dancers and being inspired by their craft. We then visited some cities in the Pacific Northwest for the spring holidays, all of which were really special and beautiful. Soon I will head back to Los Angeles to perform Gilda in Rigoletto with Juan Jesus Rodriguez in the title role, and Arturo Chacon-Cruz as the Duke, as well as my good friends Morris Robinson as Sparafucile and Ginger Costa-Jackson as Maddalena! I know we will have a blast!

Then I have the honor of getting to sing Lucia at the Teatro Real in Madrid for 8 performances. The cast is also marvelous, with Javier Camarena as Edgardo, and Artur Rucinski as Enrico. David Alden’s production looks so intriguing and I can’t wait to be a part of it. It’s also of course, very exciting to get to work with Maestro Daniel Oren for the first time.

We hope you can join us at one of our upcoming shows!

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Here it is everyone! My new Album is now available!

Digital Only (Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp, etc)

A woman’s love is like a desert. Aux filles du désert comes from one of the most moving lines in Bizet’s song “Adieux de l’hôtesse arabe.” This song is about an Arabic woman, who has spent a bit of time with a man who was a wandering traveler, and passed through her harem. I feel so much sadness, longing, and bitterness in the text of her goodbye to him; it feels as though she is trapped and her love for him was a temporary escape, and she very much wanted him to stay in this exotic place…a place where he could have been served, cared for, and loved. For him at least, this would have been a luxury, though for her it is more likely a place of sacrifice and servitude. She tells him to never forget the daughters of the desert, the sweet voiced sisters who dance barefoot on the dunes. The way this poem is set by Bizet is masterful, and I can picture the very place in my mind whenever I sing it.

This recital was performed first in Arizona, and the setting is the American version of what Bizet's specific place might have been. To me every desert is magical. There is a sense of isolation, of great power, of extremes…and often that’s what I feel in performance; a great energy, extreme emotions, and beautiful musical landscapes. The desert may call to mind a place of scarcity, but to me it is the total opposite…it is a place of wonder and richness. A woman’s love is like a desert. All of these songs are about the depth of a woman’s love, and they are all mini landscapes, rich and beautiful, and full of wonder.
