On my way home to Los Angeles, I had a 9hr stopover in beautiful Barcelona. I have wonderful memories of the last time (and the first time) I was in Barcelona, I had the pleasure of making my role debut as Micaëla in Carmen. This time, I met my soprano friend Milica who is currently living there. We met this past summer at the Greek Opera Festival when I was Poppea and she was Ottavia in L’incoronazione di Poppea. We are looking forwarded to sharing the stage again this summer, this time in Italy in Così fan tutte when I’ll be masking my role debut as Despina and she will be returning to the role of Fiordiligi.
