Role(s) in this year's festival:
Participating in the 10-Day Intensive Program
I am very excited about attending NUOVA’s Singer Development Program. I have been preparing for this summer by carefully choosing and studying my repertoire. I researched various summer intensive programs both nationally and internationally and Opera Nuova stood out as an amazing program. This program was also recommended by my vocal instructor as an excellent opportunity. This year seemed like a wonderful and exciting time to attend now that in-person programs are once again available to young, developing artists.
