Carla in China

I was thrilled to make my operatic debut at the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing China earlier this year, in not one but two productions by acclaimed director Francesca Zambello:  as Giulietta in Les Contes d'Hoffmann as well as the title role in Carmen.  It was an unforgettable experience to perform these wonderful characters in China, while also learning so much about Chinese history and culture.  I particularly enjoyed getting to know my Chinese colleagues and even learned a few words of Chinese while I was there!
