Almaviva in Astoria (but not in August :)

I am pleased to report that I will be performing the role of Count Almaviva in "Le nozze di Figaro" in Astoria, Oregon this summer as part of the Astoria Music Festival. The production will be directed by Noel Koran, who directed my first performance as the Count (with Lyric Opera Northwest in 2009) and it will be great to have the opportunity to work with him again. I will be singing with a cast of singers mostly new to me, and it's always enjoyable meeting and performing with new colleagues. I will be in Astoria from mid-June until July 3rd, and Heather even gets to join me for the last few days, which will be wonderful. I look forward to a great time!
