Q&A with Mezzo-Soprano Bridget Cappel
Q: Elixir is a collaboration between Fort Worth Opera and The Mexico Institute. How do you feel about events like these, those that feature not only opera, but zarzuelas, tangos and boleros?
A: I think an event that encompasses so many unique genres of music and dance styles is sure to be a fabulous and special one. I
know that the Mexico Institute is an organization whose mission is to foster communication and understanding between Mexico and the United States and I can't think of a better celebration of that mission than through the sharing of music.
Music is a universal language and I think this is an incredible opportunity for audience members from all different backgrounds to come together to enjoy a variety of music both familiar and brand new and I'm honored to be a part of that experience.
Q: Without giving away the songs you are going to perform, can you share a little bit about your participation on the 25th?
A: A couple of my selections are from a set of art songs based on Spanish folk music and I'll be teaming up with one of the tenors to perform an exciting Zarzuela duet, but you'll have to come out to The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth to hear and see!
