#MeToo and the Women of Opera

I was honored to be part of an important discussion on NPR this weekend, It’s archived here:

Shout-out to the two amazing, strong and smart emerging singers who shared this experience with me – Leah Hawkins and (WTOS alumna) Aleks Romano!

More to come on this later in the summer, as we approach our Filene Center production, and we reconcile the beauty and power of Rigoletto with its complicated themes.

Very interesting metoo discussion.
Now someone needs to change the ending of a
Madame Butterfly production also.
It is just as sexist as Carmen and badly
needs revision. I won’t take my grandchildren
To either of these operas because of the
Sexist endings.
