This past weekend, my husband took me to my first opera at the Met. Despite having just written about my personal definition of “making it,” I couldn’t help but feel under-accomplished next to leading ladies Danielle de Niese and Isabel Leonard, who made their respective Met debuts at age 19 and 25. I know I got a late start for a soprano, but sheesh!
On the bright side, feeling inferior motivated me to practice tonight. Maybe someday you’ll see my Met debut at the ripe old age of 35 😉
