Systir Angelica

Ópera í Tjarnarbíó

ópera í einum þætti eftir Puccini, ég syng Abbadísina

The operagroup “Óp-hópurinn” is a group of   great young singers who will be performing Suor Angelica on Saturday. They have asked me to sing the Badessa. Although a very short role (I think my shortest ever!) it needs to have authority and power.

Its fun to sing in a nun costume…the last time I did that was in a red nun costume in Carsons production of Zauberflöte at Opera de Lyon.
