Russian Opera Workshop 2011 alumna, Shelley performed the title role of Iolanta in Tchaikovsky's opera Iolanta.
Brad Cawyer is back in US on a short tour from Saint Petersburg, Russia. He stopped in Philly for a quick visit with yours truly, Ghenady Meirson, and Shelley Jackson. It was nice to catch up and reminisce about Russian Opera Workshop 2011 and our work on Iolanta, where Shelley sang the title role.
