San Francisco Opera Center Director SHERI GREENAWALD has had a distiguished international operatic singing career as a soprano, noted in particular for her range of roles. She has sung featured roles with San Francisco Opera, the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Venice’s La Fenice, the Munich State Opera, and Paris’s Chatelet Theater, among many others. Ms Greenawald’s singing career is rivaled only by her success in training and mentoring talented young singers with the Merola Opera Program and San Francisco Opera’s Adler Fellows.
Opera Parallèle, “led by artistic director and conductor Nicole Paiement along with stage director Brian Staufenbiel, has quickly become one of the Bay Area’s most indispensable artistic assets”.
