I would love to sing the role of Mimi in the near future.
The Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute. She scares me.
That list is endless. I would love to be onstage with Anna Netrebko, Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Renée Fleming. As for conductors, I would love to sing for Riccardo Muti, Zubin Mehta, James Levine, Gustavo Dudamel…
Definitely my Motown music!
The biggest challenge is to find all of the layers to Musetta and to reveal as much of them as possible within the arc of the opera, which isn’t very long. There is so much more to her than this flirty personality. She’s complicated, and that makes her fun and challenging to play.
The amount of exposure that I've received has been a huge change for me. I have had some amazing opportunities open up for me due to this competition. I'm looking forward to the future and getting my career started.
I heard Kathleen Battle sing a recital when I was nine years old. There was something about her presence, her amazing gown and, of course, her incredible voice that just drew me in to her. I can't remember the songs she sang, but I knew, after hearing her and from the effect that she had on me, that I wanted to be able to do that one day and make people feel that way with my own voice.
Shirley Verrett, Leontyne Price, Renée Fleming, Plácido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti and Joan Sutherland.
It would probably be Juliette. She has so many characteristics that I identify with.
“Downton Abbey,” an amazing show!
