San Diego Opera Podcast
Learn about opera and San Diego Opera's current season, hosted by Nicolas Reveles, The Geisel Director of Education and Outreach. Give us 15 minutes weekly, and we'll give you the operatic world! This podcast hosted by LibSyn.com

We've done Humperdinck's wonderful opera Hansel and Gretel a number of times in our history of productions here at San Diego Opera, but we've never had a tenor play the role of the Witch! We're welcoming back tenor Joel Sorensen, who's been with the company a number of times since 1999 (Carlisle Floyd's Of Mice and Men). On top of singing the role, something of a challenge simply from the standpoint of musicality and vocalism, Joel has to manipulate a life-sized puppet as a costume, something that makes this a very special opportunity for him as a singing actor. Listen in as Nic Reveles interviews him about this challenging role!
