Two shows with Tacoma Opera!

I am currently rehearsing "La tragedie de Carmen" with Tacoma Opera (as Zuniga) and having a lot of fun in my first speaking role in quite some time! The cast is a very strong one, with Hannah Penn as Carmen, Jennifer Valle as Micaela, Jon Farmer as Jose, and Danny Oakden as Escamillo. Performances are the 8th and 10th of February at the Rialto Theater. More info on

After this show closes, I begin rehearsals for "La traviata" (as Marquis d'Obigny) and I am very excited for this show as well! I met our Violetta (Jacquelynn Fontaine) quite by chance in NYC this past December, and I will be sharing the stage with a few old friends as well. This production will be directed by Noel Koran and conducted by Keith Clark.

Stay tuned for more upcoming announcements!!

Several upcoming performances!

I am excited to report that I have three upcoming opera engagements, all of which I'm looking forward to very much. First, I will be with Opera Coeur d'Alene ( in May for the Wolf/Woodsman in Barab's "Little Red Riding Hood". Other singers include Audra de Laveaga (Mother/Grandmother) and Courtney Ruckman (Little Red Riding Hood). Then I will head to Princeton, New Jersey for the months of June and July. I'll be singing in HMS Pinafore (Bill Bobstay) and Il trovatore, in addition to some scenes (as Sharpless in "Madama Butterfly" and Taddeo in "L'italiana in Algeri"). In August, when I return, I will be reprising Schaunard in "La Boheme" with newly formed Spielplatz Opera, alongside some wonderful friends who round out this amazing cast. Stay tuned for more updates!

It's only been a month this time!

Well here we are more than halfway through March and it's been a very busy last month with "Orphee" at Seattle Opera completing a very enjoyable run, and now having been in rehearsal for "La Boheme" in Tacoma for the last couple of weeks, it sure would be difficult to ask for much better :) I'm loving singing with so many good friends and the THIRD time around as Schaunard is definitely the best so far! It's a thrill to be repeating the role and discovering more and more with every rehearsal.

I've also been doing a number of gigs with the new Opera On Tap-Seattle group, led by three of my favorite soprani: Megan Chenovick, Ksenia Popova, and Erica Row. I sang with them in November and December, once at "Blue Moon" and the other at "In The Red" in Phinney Ridge. Then this year we have already had one more performance at each of those venues. I'll be joining them again in mid-April, singing some Papageno and a few things from Rossini's "Guillaume Tell".

More coming soon, so stay tuned!

A busy season so far!

Here I am once again, very overdue on updating my my defense, I have been keeping pretty busy (on and off the stage!) and I have much to share. This season began with a run of "Carmen" at Seattle Opera, where I sang in the chorus and enjoyed singing alongside a great cast of principals, one being Anita Rachvelishvili, our Carmen, who is establishing herself all over the world as one of the premier mezzo-sopranos performing today. Following "Carmen", I sang in the MONC auditions in Seattle (with a new and improved group of arias, all of which I've really enjoyed learning!) and then for the third straight year, performed the "Messiah" solos with Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Magnolia (Seattle). 

Next came a December trip to New York City, which was, as usual, filled with auditions and running into various singer-friends all over town. I'm happy to report that I'll be a member of the Emerging Artist program at Opera New Jersey this summer, where I'll be singing in "HMS Pinafore" and a number of concerts and scenes programs. 

I am currently with Seattle Opera chorus once again for Gluck's "Orphee" which opens on February 25th. It's a great cast and the music has quickly become a new favorite of mine! I will also shortly be beginning rehearsals with Tacoma Opera for "La Boheme", where I'll be singing Schaunard at the Rialto Theater March 30th and April 1st. 

Thank you for following "what I'm up to" and I hope to see you at a performance very soon!
