How do you get to the MET?

NEW YORK | In front of the Metropolitan Opera House, I caught up with soprano Danielle Pastin who just made her Met debut in Tchaikovsky's "Queen of Spades" (Pique Dame). Recently, she also made her Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra debut in Tchaikovsky's "Romeo & Juliet." One might say she is now well exposed to Russian repertoire. It was a busy afternoon in Lincoln Center on a very windy New York day. As we were shooting the interview, AVA alum Jason Switzer sang Beethoven 9th in Avery Fisher Hall. A bit later, the Met held its National Council Auditions Grand Finals where AVA Artist, Michelle Johnson and Joseph Barron from Curtis where named winners. Enjoy!
