Michael Capasso presents the Gershwins' Porgy and Bess
SEQUINA DUBOSE (Clara) made her debut with the Lyric Opera of Chicago this season covering the role of Annie in Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. She also performed last season as Clorinda in Rossini's La Cenerentola with Opera Memphis. Other performed roles include Pamina in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, Lauretta in Puccini's Gianni Schicchi, Nanetta in Verdi's Falstaff, and both Susanna and Countess in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro. Ms. DuBose, a Marian Anderson Historical Society Scholar, has received awards and high rankings in the Annapolis Opera Competition, the Leontyne Price Competition, the Five Towns Music and Art Foundation Competition, and the Gerda Lissner Foundation International Competition. She has appeared as a soloist in the world premiere performance and recording of Wynton Marsalis' All Rise, with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic. A recent graduate of The Manhattan School of Music, she currently resides in New York City.
