"Thank you for the work that you do! I feel blessed to have discovered the Living Opera community and welcomed with open arms.

The platform is a place for me to voice concerns and joys about the work that I do as a performer. Soula and Norm have helped me with things as trivial as what to wear on the first day of rehearsal, to the ever-important skill of developing habits to maintain mental clarity while traveling.

I hope that as more people come into contact with the work of Living Opera they will come to know what a necessary and valuable resource this provides. Being an opera singer means that we have many colleagues, but we don't often share physical space. Living Opera is providing a consistent workplace environment where we can gather and communicate from the various places in which we live and work."
