This past summer, Chelsea was in residence as a young artist at Des Moines Metro Opera, where she played the role of Mrs. Nordstrom in A Little Night Music.


30 Days of Opera is a bit of an "all hands on deck" moment for musicians in Memphis, so you might see people performing even though they are not listed here. If you're curious about someone you've seen perform, just say hello! They're all friendly. It's pretty much a requirement for this gig. Toward the end of the month, 30 Days of Opera performances may feature some of the singers from our La traviata cast. You can find out about them here.
