A Little Night Music (by Stephen Sondheim)
with Lamplighters Music Theater
February 2-3 (San Francisco, CA)
February 9-10 (Walnut Creek, CA)
February 16-17 (Mountain View, CA)
A Little Night Music is a musical with music/lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler. You'll probably recognize a few tunes from this musical- namely "Send in the Clowns". The story is inspired by Ingmar Bergman's Smiles of a Summer Night. It has a unique structure, where there is a Greek Chorus (i.e. "the Liebeslieders") of characters who comment on the unfolding story, and then there are the characters in the story itself. I play the role of Mrs. Nordstrom, who is part of the commenting Liebeslieders.

Pride and Prejudice (by Kirke Mechem)
a world premiere concert performance with Redwood Symphony of Mechem's new opera based on the book by Jane Austen
April 6th and 7th @ Cañada College Main Theater (4200 Farm Hill Blvd, Redwood City, CA)
In the first ever operatic rendition of Jane Austen's book, I'll play the role of Lydia! Kirke Mechem writes fantastically for each of the characters in the novel, highlighting their moods and styles perfectly matched with the music. This is a concert version of the opera. It will be recorded in hopes that it will get funding to be staged next!
