I just got back from Fort Worth Opera, where I heard some great young singers, and was joined by fellow judges Angela Maria Blasi (Columbia Artists), Alison Pybus (IMG Artists), Darren Woods, GD at Fort Worth Opera, and David Roth, GD at Kentucky Opera. A marvelous soprano, Jan Cornelius, took home the top prize, but the entire finals field was very strong! Committed performances, both vocally and dramatically. All in all, a great time. Now, I am back, and we are in the middle of rehearsals for what I think will be a marvelous new production of Mozart's Idomeneo.
