Yesterday was the premiere of L’Incoronazione di Poppea at the Opera Academy in Oslo.
All in all it was a very good performance, and people were very excited about the show.
So many great people have been working extremely hard to make the production to the wonderful whole it has become. I felt so grateful to be standing on the stage among the beautiful set designed by Nikolaus Webern, and in the amazing costumes by Haley Peterson.
Working with our director, Jacopo Spirei, has probably been the best experience in my career as a singer so far. His professionalism and understanding of the piece but also the connection to us as artists and students in the most sympathetic way was truly a wonderful experience. It was sheer joy working with him, and hopefully it is not the last time!
I also had a talk after the performance with two people from the “Bundesagentur für Arbeit”the ZAV, which came to see the show. They gave me their card and invited me to come audition for agents when I had the time in between projects in Lyon. They seemed very excited and interested.
My last performance is on monday, I can’t wait to take it to even greater heights!
