I was very happy to see a surprise visitor from Miami. Nathalie Avila was Russian Opera Workshop Artist 2012, when she sang the role of Liza in Tchaikovsky's "The Queen of Spades" (Pique Dame).
Recently, Nathalie performed Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana and Suzel in L'amico Fritz with Miami Lyric Opera. Upcoming performances include the title role in Suor Angelica with the Miami Opera Festival in June, Suzel in L'amico Fritz in July and Mimi in La Boheme in August both with Miami Lyric Opera.
Congratulations to Jeffrey Williams, Russian Opera Workshop Artist 2012 & 2014, on his appointment as full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor of Voice at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN starting in the fall of 2014!
Jeff recently competed Nashville Opera 2014 Mary Ragland Young Artists Program and in June 2014 is returning to Russian Opera Workshop to sing Lionel and Dunois in the Philadelphia Premiere of Tchaikovsky's The Maid of Orleans.
