The group talked about this season at AZ Opera, what we have to look forward to next season, some of the challenges that singers face with an ever changing and evolving voice, as well as preferred roles in opera. The webcast contains quite a few laughs, plenty of insights, and a discussion about how the opera can appeal to geeks from all different walks of life.
Special thanks go out to Arizona Opera’s Marketing Manager, Caitie Quick, for making this opportunity possible, as well as Joe, Alek and Daniela, for taking time out of their busy day to sit with us for this interview.
It’s safe to say that both Keith [Lane] and I were living up to our podcast name as we were geeking out in a huge way!!!
