Sorry to see that the Opera Lady will leave Pittsburgh Opera. Beth Parker has been such a resource for me, in addition to all the work she has done for the community. The real secret is, she had a full-time job of other duties at the Opera! How she managed to do all the Opera Lady work (phone calls and appearances) is beyond me. Her time here also saw the expansion of notes in the programs, which is a great thing.

I have said many times that roles like hers are crucial for the future of opera and classical music, so let's hope we see more of them even as she moves on to an new life chapter.
