Carin Gilfry and Alex Lawrence met in 2011 as Young Artists with the Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown, NY. The mezzo-soprano and baritone fell in love, were married, and now get to balance those facts with their very busy and far-flung opera careers.
Alex is singing the role of Belfiore in Verdi's King for a Day at Glimmerglass this summer and during the year he has a contract with the Zurich Opera in Switzerland.
Carin recently performed in La Perichole with New York City Opera, and covered in Le Nozze di Figaro in Los Angeles.
The couple joins us now to talk about life as married opera singers and about The Glimmerglass Festival.
