From an early age, soprano Rebecca Carr was destined to sing, and to spend her life on stage. At her first cry, her Russian grandmother exclaimed, “What a big, thick voice she has!” As a child, standing on a lawn of blinking fireflies, she said, “Look Mommie, they’re ALL taking pictures of ME!” As a teen, a neighbor could hear her singing ABOVE the roar of a lawnmower.
From her stage debut as an apprentice at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse, to the stages of the United States, Europe, and Carnegie Hall, she is now home in the Finger Lakes, sharing her love of OPERA with everyone who will listen!
Presenting “A Great OPERA-tunity” to listen, learn, and relate to the world’s best-loved and well-known operatic melodies, and to experience the power of the un-amplified human voice in APT’s intimate Cinema setting.
