Brush with fame

Last Sunday, we met Rachel Willis-Sørensen, who is an American opera singer currently at the Dresden Semperoper. She gave a talk in the Dresden ward right after I gave my testimony (her German is fantastic!) and I thought she looked familiar. That's because I read this article about her in BYU Magazine last fall. It's a really good article!

It's not really accurate to say she's an opera singer -- she's an opera star. She sings the biggest roles and all over the world. It was fun to meet her -- she's friendly and funny and lovely and really nice! I wish I was going to see her in the opening of Don Giovanni tonight at the Semperoper, but it turns out I'm too cheap to buy the only tickets that were left. I hope to see her perform someday.
