A Soprano in her first season with the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program with the Washington National Opera, Micaëla, this season, made her debut as Annina in Verdi’s La Traviata and can be seen this spring as “First Niece” in Britten’s Peter Grimes and the “Forest Bird” in Wagner’s Siegfried.
This actor and singer has had the privilege of working in New York, Los Angeles, and many Washington area productions, but her favorite work continues to be with local children’s theaters because she“thinks it’s important to get ‘em while they’re young.” Levey has volunteered as a teacher/resident artist and entertainer.
