Dear readers, we have interviewed Leah Crocetto already, for her Il Trovatore
at North Carolina Opera. She is an incredibly gifted young singer, and her interesting answers can be found [here
Now, Luiz Gazzola will have the pleasure of seeing her for the second time live on stage, in her Santa Fe Opera performance of the role of Anna Erisso in Rossini's Maometto Secondo, which Opera Lively is extensively covering, with full announcement [click here
], an interview with Dr. Philip Gossett - Rossini scholar who is assisting SFO in this production (see his interview [here
]), an upcoming interview with Luca Pisaroni (in the role of Maometto), and now a second interview with Leah. [Opera Lively interview # 37] Here it is:
OL - Dear Leah, I'd like to ask you some follow-up questions on Maometto II to include in our coverage. But first, let me compliment you on your interview with Opera News Magazine. We are happy that we spotted you before they did! (laughs)
LC - Dearest Luiz, thank you so much for the compliments on the interview for Opera News! It was great fun!
