After finishing my run as Elivra in Blithe Spirit to SOLD OUT houses and cheers from the audiences and standing ovations... I couldn"t have felt more gratified... I took a deep breath... slipped on my character shoes and immediately went straight into rehearsals for the grandest of grand operas, La Traviata. I will be performing with the First Coast Opera.
I will be acting and dancing in it. This will be my second time doing La Traviata, the first time directed by Marta Domingo at Los Angeles Opera, and choreographed by Peggy Hickey. It was simply the grandest of experiences.
What a wonderful way to end the year - in a beautiful production with a full orchestra under my feet, so to speak... We will be opening on New Years and continue into January 2022!!
Watch as Annie takes to the stage, live, in La Traviata's "Gypsy Dance"!
Watch Annie dance to "Gypsy Dance" from Act 2 of La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi.
