Accessibility in contemporary opera
As a composer and singer of contemporary opera, my goal as an artist is to show that opera can be accessible to everyone. Elements of opera can be used to amplify the emotional quality of story beats, as well as tell a story in a different form. The contemporary operas I have written deal with themes relatable to modern audiences. Through my composition and performance ability, I aim to create performances that everyone, musician and non musician, young and old, will enjoy.
