Trappers in Chicago

Yesterday afternoon’s opera performances in the windy city included Lawrence Brownlee’s Lyric Opera of Chicago debut in La cenerentola. We are proud to call Larry a Trapper, and I’m beside myself with excitement about sharing the recital stage with him in a few months. A few weeks ago, he was featured on the Fatherly website. If you’ve ever wondered how it’s possible to combine career and family, you could do worse than start here.

That’s Valerie on the left, and Ava (unrecognizable…) second from left in her first trouser role! Photo Credit: Justin Barbin, courtesy COT.

Check out the video below to hear more about all of the soprano goodness in this early Mozart opera…

Today’s pre-audition day in Chicago will include a master class at Northwestern University and a chance to visit with our Cio-Cio San from last summer.
