The Deal

Rising Stars of the Metropolitan Opera

Artists will perform selections from beloved operas, including Carmen, Cosi Fan Tutte, and La Boheme, plus musical theatre favorites from South Pacific, My Fair Lady, and Carousel.

  • Adam Diegel: A tenor who debuted with the Metropolitan Opera as Froh in Das Rheingold, Diegel has lent his impressive voice to English National Opera, Opera Australia, Vancouver Opera, and Minnesota Opera.
  • Amanda Woodbury: Carmen’s Micaëla, Gianni Schicchi’s Lauretta, and Die Zauberflöte’s Papagena—these are just a few of the roles the soprano and Audience Choice Award winner of Plácido Domingo’s Operalia competition has embodied.
  • Sarah Mesko: This mezzo-soprano won the Richard F. Gold Career Grant twice and has performed with the Washington National Opera multiple times. Her breakthrough performance with the D.C. juggernaut: as the titular character in Carmen.
  • Trevor Scheunemann: This baritone got his start in Washington National Opera’s Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program. Since then, he’s graced stages around the world, including Teatro Municipal de Santiago, Opéra de Monte Carlo, and Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse.
  • Brent Funderburk: The New York Times calls this Juilliard grad an “excellent pianist.” Reporters must have been furiously scrabbling on sheet music to quote his gigs on some of the country’s finest stages, such as Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall, and the Ravinia Festival.

Mayo Performing Arts Center

The Mayo Performing Arts Center straddles time. While one foot is planted in the old-fashioned charm of the 1930s movie-palace golden age, the other is firmly in the tech-savvy modern day. Between is a stretch of history that saw the theater fall into disrepair and then resurrect itself to its star-studded heyday thanks to volunteers. Since its 1994 rebirth, the center has welcomed everyone from the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg to Ringo Starr and Aretha Franklin. But, if the Mayo Center were a tripod, its third foot would certainly reach toward the future—a suite of education studios is on site to cultivate the next generation of performers.
