After 72 performance for over 19,000 students, the Barber of Seville tour has come to and end. Thank you to everyone at The Atlanta Opera for allowing us to share opera with so many wonderful people. To see all of those children smile after each show is something that I will carry with me always.
Several maracas were harmed in the making of this production. #maracadown
Thank you Jessica Kiger for your organization, passion for education, and for presenting opera as a gift to ears that have never experienced this art. #atlbilingualbarber
Rolando Salazar thank you for your daily hard work and musicianship. Thank you for pushing me to become a better version of myself. #loquepasopaso
Thank you Alexandria Sweatt Foree for your organization, introduction to your music, and van life chats. #tarajipcatson
Samuel Ferreira you made me laugh without fail. Thank you for your encouragement during the hard days and humor during the good ones. #beachbeachbeach
I know I joke alot, but in all honesty, you have a wonderful voice Brandi Latasha Diggs. You will go far and I will spend my starving artist money on a ticket to see you any day. #thuglife
You are just an incredible person Jessica Wax. Your work ethic is insane. Working full-time, singing full-time, and doing three other operas at the same time is completely insane. You are a role model for me when I feel like giving up. You make things happen, you do not have time to wait for them. #waxonwaxoff
Thank you to Taylor Burkhardt, Justin Maxey, Daniel Solberg, and Mauro Ronca for your gifts, patience, artistry, musicianship, and humor. We could not have done any of this without you. All 19,000+ students are better because of it.
