We are currently finalizing our cast and ensemble and are thrilled to introduce internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Ola Rafalo as the titular “second-seer,” Diskana. She will be joined by a fantastic and diverse group of local stars including Claudia Brown, Mariami Bekauri, Julia Anne Cordani, Suzanne Fatta, Brandon Mecklenburg, and myself. Please help support your local arts organizations Sotto Voce Vocal Collective and NICKEL CITY OPERA so that we, our local artists, and our special guest stars can bring you a healing performance for our times.

You can now also watch a video overview of the opera by the composer herself, in which she talks about the intersection of story-telling and vocal-writing in the work. There are also musical examples in the background that give a good overview of the arc of the piece! We hope you will join us to hear and see the full production this June!
