Up-Coming Engagements

 

 

Thank you for visiting my performance calendar! You are clearly an optimist and I treasure your interest :) 

It's very difficult to look at these photos and dream about the performances that would have been; I leave them here as a reminder that we will all be back on stage someday, telling the stories as truthfully and beautifully as we can, and when that day comes, please pop round to the stage door and say hello, so I can thank you for having faith in the magic created on the stage and for sticking around long enough for us to come back and make it all happen again, as it always has. We are in this together. I'll see you very soon, and thank you!

RECENTLY AT LYRIC OPERA OF CHICAGO

2018/2019 SEASON

ELEKTRA

by Richard Strauss
Sung in German with projected English translations


THERE’S NO OPERATIC TOUR DE FORCE TO SURPASS ELEKTRA, WITH A TITLE ROLE THAT DEMANDS A TRULY GREAT SINGING ACTRESS.

It’s a stunning vocal marathon, with riveting intensity. You owe it to yourself to experience the vocal grandeur and blazing drama of this passionate heroine. She’s the Mycenaean princess whose father, Agamemnon, was murdered by her mother, Klytemnestra, leaving Elektra hell-bent on revenge. As Richard Strauss’s staggeringly powerful orchestra moves inexorably toward the opera’s hair-raising finale, the music gives you a composer at his zenith—magnificently theatrical and devastatingly moving.

COMING SOON! SUMMER 2021
