Scott Perry and conducted by music director Carl St. Clair. For tickets and more information, click here.
This past month, Elizabeth made her debut in the Dominican Republic singing the title role in The Merry Widow. The performances at the National Theater in Santo Domingo were extremely well received by the public and the press alike.
