Alas, life moves forward. After spending December with lots of Handel’s Messiah and various other performances, and then these Rachmaninoff concerts, I hardly have time to relax before the next project. Up next is excerpts from “Madame Butterfly” by Puccini with Portland Opera. (How’s that for “something completely different?”)
I’m honored to be performing preview performances with the Portland Opera Studio Artists in preparation for the company’s mainstage production of “Butterfly.” This will be my first time singing Pinkerton (the tenor role in this opera), and it is some welcome new territory in my repertoire.
