Critical acclaim:

“It was one of those moments that seem to stop time: As part of her semi‑staged “In War and Peace” concert, the great mezzo‑soprano sang Purcell’s “Dido’s Lament.” The aria’s repeated lines of “Remember Me” have rarely sounded so touching, or so meaningful.” (The Mercury News)

“…  the industrious and remarkably thoughtful mezzo-soprano brought something completely original to the august hall’s stage. In War and Peace: Harmony Through Music marked a curated theatrical presentation blending vocal and instrumental music with dance, design, fashion, video imagery and what might be termed either politics or philosophy.” (Opera News)

    What a world we live in! After a miserable week I get to tune into Great Art from half way around the world and partake in the talent of the world’s greatest living artist. Thank you all for making this happen. This was rich, soulful, delicious and wonderful and guides us all to keep our eyes on the prize. Civilization is a great thing and great civilization is a true joy. Art with a capital “A” restores, refreshes, stimulates and renews – just what we need in times like these.
