Friday, February 24, 2012

American mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe talks about her season at the Metropolitan Opera, performing in three major roles in three different styles. Earlier this year, she reprised her role in Handel’s Baroque opera "Rodelinda" opposite Renee Fleming; later this season she will star as Fricka, queen of the gods, in Wagner’s "Ring cycle"; and currently she’s in the role of Amneris in "Aida," one of the greatest mezzo-soprano roles in all of opera.
