#regram from @edgardorochatenor From one opera to another (on two hours sleep..) First day of stage rehearsals at @opera_de_lausanne, but what a joy with such wonderful colleagues 👑❤️🗡 @edgardorochatenor @mikakaresbasso @ketevankemoklidze #opera #annabolena #trio #suisse
Last Manon tonight @sbglandestheater... We started this rehearsal process more than seven months ago, and it feels really strange to be finally at the end. A HUGE thank you to all of my wonderful colleagues here- I’m really looking forward to Don Giovanni in April with much of the same crew!! So it’s not adieu, but au revoir ❤️😉💋#manon #massenet #opera #salzburg
Tired but happy Manon ready to go on- finally made it from Lausanne at two in the morning last night with all this snow!! #12 and second to last performance of Manon here at the @sbglandestheater I’m going to miss this girl. #Manon #Salzburg #operasinger #schnee #cheveux
Last week I sang a concert with @russianchamberartsociety at the French embassy in Washington DC, which other than being the first time I have sung art song since grad school (!) most importantly meant that I got to have a large contingent of my lovely family there! My youngest brother may have been more excited that he got to “go to France” than listening to Rachmaninoff, but it’s a start.
Thank you to Vera Danchenko, @pianistcomposer and @wetzellikepretzel for a wonderful recital. #pushkin #whitman #russian_inspiration #rachmaninoff #liederabend #artsong #family #beret #baguettes
In the rush of early December auditions and travel I have been terribly remiss about posting!! However- I am so excited to announce an addition to my season, as Anna Bolena at the Opéra de Lausanne this February! I cannot be more thrilled to return to Switzerland- my first time since I got my European start at @operzuerich So incredibly grateful for this opportunity- and looking forward to more Bolena-ing @staatstheaterka in March!! 🇨🇭👑⚔️🎼❤️
Singing in new cities is so much better with friends @gemmanb_mezzo @clairedesevigne @baritoneboi #opera #bordeaux #vinrougesilvousplait
“I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down, and still somehow it’s cloud’s illusions I recall- I really don’t know clouds at all...”
I made friends on the mountain with an Austrian gentleman (with a much better camera) and he sent me this photo- I have never experienced a group of people staring at a sunset in collective silence. It’s a beautiful reminder, how lucky we are to be here.
