Stage Appearances

In my life as a professional singer, I have sung on the stages of the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Opera and with major opera houses in Italy, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. I moved to San Diego, California to take care of my ailing mother and opened my private Voice Studio. I was invited to sing with Lyric Opera San Diego as well as the San Diego Master Chorale, La Jolla Symphony and Chorus and Regional Theatres. Today, my interest is performing the wonderful character roles in Musical Theatre, Opera and Gilbert and Sullivan. Roles such as The Old Lady in “Candide,” Prince Orlofsky in “Die Fledermaus,” Ruth in “The Pirates of Penzance,” Katisha in “The Mikado,” The Duchess of Plaza-Toro in “The Gondoliers,” Margaret in “Light in the Piazza,” Domina in “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum,” the Mother Abbess in “The Sound of Music,” Mame in “Mame,” Nettie Fowler in “Carousel,” Desiree in “A Little Night Music,” The Witch in “Into the Woods,” and Lalume in “Kismet.”
