La Bohème at The Metropolitan Opera

I’ll be joining the world famous Puccini opera La Bohème at The Met next week as a “Sapper” (soldier) carrying a rifle and marching through the streets of Paris. See the company photo from a past production. The last time I did this show was with The Denver Opera Company. I had two secondary roles and was only 18!! It’s been almost 20 years!?

Discounted tickets available.  Hope you can come and check it out.


Astral Dame: Live Recording – Now Available

Our bosom buddies down at The Duplex made a delicious recording of our show on that historic Marriage Equality Day on June 26th. And now, that historic recording can be YOURS! If you want a real live compact disc, I will gladly mail you one, or if you’ve moved into the here and now, I can send you a digital download.
