Some favorites include Despina (Cosi Fan Tutte) with Opera Carolina, Blondchen (Die Entführung aus dem Serail) with Arizona Opera, Rosina (Il Barbiere di Siviglia) and the title role in La Fille du Régiment with Connecticut Concert Opera, Gilda (Rigoletto) and Amina (La Sonnambula) with Salt Marsh Opera and Valencienne (The Merry Widow) with Cape Cod Opera. Most recently she portrayed Blonde the Orion Slave Girl in a Star Trek parody of Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio with Salt Marsh Opera, she appeared in the Texas premiere of The Hotel Casablanca as Veronique with Abilene Opera, and sang the role of Marianne in The New Moon and Helen de Vazquez in Victor Herbert’s Orange Blossoms with Light Opera of New York, which was recently released on the Albany Records label
