2018 Summer Opera Festival ROLE: Siebel in Faust
What are you looking forward to most about preparing your role?
Siébel is a role I have wanted to play for a few years so I am excited to learn and play a new character. It’s fun figuring out how a character walks and how I can embody the character, especially pants roles.
If you had to choose a pop song that best describes the character you are portraying, what would it be?
"Our Day Will Come," by Amy Winehouse
What do you think will be the most challenging part about preparing your role?
Memorizing French. It’s harder for me to memorize than other languages
Why do you love to sing opera?
I love the drama, the way opera feels in my voice and being able to create a show that audiences can watch and feel like they have been told a story
Aside from singing, name a talent/stupid human trick/hoby others might not be aware of ....
I can pick up items with my toes...like while cleaning pens or pencils on the floor
