Posted on: February 8, 2022

LA Opera is proud to share this special conversation recorded on November 9, 2015 between renowned opera artist Maria Ewing and Michael Hackett of UCLA. Throughout her remarkable career, Miss Ewing astonished audiences with her searing performances in both soprano and mezzo-soprano roles. As one of the early leading artists at LA Opera, she spoke with Dr. Hackett as part of LA Opera's oral history project to discuss her career, roles and a life in opera. We celebrate Maria Ewing's life, honor her legacy and remember her artistry and performances across the world.
