Stage Director: Opera-Theatre-Musicals
Stage Directors expect a high level of creativity from singers, not just as interpreters of their blocking, but to improvise in the moment and to create the action to be directed. Collaborating with Directors this way not only leads to a stronger performance, it helps you to be hired again!
I believe in aiding a performer not just to be accidentally or sporadically creative, but to be Successfully Creative: structuring independence by developing skills that allow artists no longer to need constant supervision and direction.
I developed this fun one-week master class series for San Francisco Opera’s Adler Fellows Program in order to unlock the creative potential in each singer.
