(L-R) LEILANI AS EURYDICE AND A SCENE FROM LA OPERA’S 19/20 SEASON PRODUCTION OF EURYDICE
(L-R) LEILANI as Clara johnson WITH HER SCENE PARTNER AND LA OPERA’S 19/20 SEASON PRODUCTION OF THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA
Name: Leilani Patao
Opera Activities: Leilani has been an ambassador for LA Opera’s 90012 program.
Opera Character: For the first image, Leilani referenced The Light in the Piazza since she loves the show. She noted that her dog made a great scene partner! For her second image, Leilani chose a scene from Eurydice that resonated with her. Leilani said, “I thought the lighting and the emotion on her face somehow resonated with me as how I feel during my many Zoom meetings.”
Opera Future: Leilani hopes to one day sing the roles of Sesto from Mozart’s The Clemency of Titus and Juliette in Gounod’s Romeo and Juliet. If she weren’t a performer, she would be a costume designer or director.
