Spectacular Stradella

April 25, 2013

It was really wonderful to be a part of Stradella’s stunning oratorio “San Giovanni Battista”, presented by ARTEK. The masterpiece was conducted by Gwendolyn Toth and joined by Italian violinist Enrico Gatti. Gwen Toth is always a delight to work for, and Enrico Gatti was excellent.  Thank you all for coming!

Greetings from Dartmouth, NH.

Last week, I performed the title role in a new opera called “Tesla in New York”, written by Jim Jarmusch and Phil Kline.  It is a really fascinating story of the mysterious turn-of-the-century genius who helped invent radio.  The in-progress concert version was presented at the Hopkins Center for the Arts in Hanover, NH.  Click here for more info!
