We at Operavision Academy are proud and thrilled to officially and permanently institute Maestra Inseon Lee of Korea as the Head of Musical Staff. Maestra Lee works at the Accademia della Scala in Milano, in opera houses internationally, and recently made her Carnegie Hall Debut in a recital with Operavision’s own, the legendary Aprile Millo. Having been on our staff for the past four years, Maestra Lee brings a wealth of knowledge of style, language, and performance practice in opera and she is one of the rare human orchestras as an accompanist. We are very proud to have her as a permanent member of our faculty and wish her success and congratulations in all that she aspires. Grazie Maestra Lee!
Returning for the 4th time by special invitation to this gorgeous city and people we love…. Busseto, Italy….with hearts full of joy and promise but also in loving remembrance of our very cherished friend and inspiration, the great Simonetta Puccini, who left us just a little while ago, and we are holding her fast in our hearts and close in our thoughts. This year will be dedicated to her memory and we will sing so she can hear us in her heaven of melody and glorious light and harmony……
Come join us for an always astoundingly profound journey in history as we strive to create our own….. so much to announce, but now, this to invite….. come be with us…. you’ll never forget it or be the same!
