"The Voice as an Instrument"
Oriana Falla. Praised by Opera News for her “palpable purity” and by LA Opus for her “large, lovely, and vibrant [voice],” Colombian-American soprano Falla, began her 2021-2022 season with a Concert for Peace for the Washington Concert Society. Most recently, Oriana recorded for the new Disney film Encanto. In December 2020, Oriana sang Mimi in Pacific Opera Project’s drive-in performance of La Bohѐme; Opera News hailed the performance as sung with “rare clarity” and referred to her performance as having “plumbed the character’s emotional depths… the most heart wrenching moment of the performance.”
Arnold Livingston Geis. Praised by Opera Today for his “sizable lyric instrument” and “honeyed tone on all registers”, Arnold Livingston Geis is a recent graduate of Washington National Opera’s prestigious Cafritz Young Artist Program. In the 2021/22 season he made his Lincoln Center creating the role of Mr. Marks in Lynn Nottage and Ricky Ian Gordon’s Intimate Apparel. He also sang Agamemnon in a workshop of Wayne Shorter & Esperanza Spalding’s Iphigenia at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D. C., and Obadiah in Mendelssohn’s Elijah with St. George’s Choral Society in New York City.
