Alumna Helps Create Opera Short Film

Esme Wong, pianist (MM ’17), is part of the short film "To the Afflicted" with Raehann Bryce-Davis, mezzo soprano, singing “All’afflitto è dolce il pianto,” an aria from Gaetano Donizetti’s 1837 opera Roberto Devereux. "To the Afflicted is a solemn remembrance, a celebration, a clenched fist around the reigns of destiny, an open hand raised in praise. I dedicate this to the afflicted, those in opera and those fighting on the front lines for justice and equity.” - Bryce-Davis
