Venturing into Wagner

Is this what it feels like to grow up as a singer?  I’m dipping my toe in to see how it feels to swim with Wagner. (No.  Not the river Rhein.  Not yet, at least.)

It is my great pleasure to announce that I will be singing the role of Daland in Richard Wagner’s Der Fliegende Holländer (The Flying Dutchman), with Opera Roanoke.  I’m excited to take on this great role that I associate with the great bass Giorgio Tozzi, who I had the honor of studying with at Indiana University.  It is also very fortunate that I have the opportunity to do a meaty role like this for the first time with a top-notch conductor.  The Opera will be conducted Maestro Stephen White, who I worked with last summer at the Phoenicia Festival.

Who knows?  Maybe this will mark the commencement into a whole new arena of repertoire!  Ich freue mich!

Come see and hear for yourself.

  • Hi there, its nice piece of writing regarding media print, we
    all know media is a enormous source of information.

  • I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
