Miriam Gordon-Stewart is both a world class soprano and co-founder and artistic director of Victory Hall Opera, an artist-led opera troupe in Charlottesville, Virginia. While still an active soloist, she and two other singers turned away from what she calls the “arena” (i.e. the opera industry) to embark on what she calls the “frontier” (i.e. the world of independent creation). Miriam and I talk about the freedom and hard work of the opera frontier, about the stage magic that happens when singers get to lead, about the advantages, both personal and artistic, of having a close-knit performance troupe, and about upcoming projects, which include Unsung, a film that takes a raw look at the lives of opera singers and includes footage and music from Victory Hall Opera’s recording of La Traviata. It premieres online this February, 20201 – see link below for tickets!
