Welcome to my "Voice Box"
Enjoy this 35-second sneak preview
I would be honored if you came to see me be
an Evil Space Queen, :-)
Feeling absolutely thrilled for this role debut
of the infamous Queen of the Night and
I am excited to attempt one of the most difficult coloratura soprano
roles that Mozart ever wrote- it has been a lot of work!
And even better, this version of The Magic Flute is guaranteed to be nothing like any Magic Flute you've ever seen before. It is a world premiere of a totally new English translation, adapted to a fun story
involving plenty of Sci-Fi references, (it works)
written by my friends at Petite Opera Productions.
You have four chances to see my cast, starting this weekend!
-And, if you can not make it to the nights that I perform-
I encourage you to see the production's equally fantastic other cast!

"Think Outside Your Box" means 3 things:
1. Be Selfless - think beyond your own "box". (and for singers, there's more to life than your voice box!) You're capable of helping and healing others.
2. Feel Empowered to bust out of the proverbial
"box" made of societally-induced-parameters.
3. Be Bold. Innovate. Stretch yourself. You can do anything if you set your mind to it.
