How did that name come about?
She’s going to be able to sing for a lot longer, and I think we’re going to make a real name for it, like a Dizzy Gillespie.
How did you go about deciding which of the three women should sing for the opera? Was it mostly about who had the best voice?
A lot of it was a matter of personal taste. I think we were all really into it from the get-go. The question had to be decided based on the sound work. We were very conscious about how we want the opera to be heard. I’ve always thought that if you really listen to what they are singing, it will make you want to go to the theater—and the opera is a huge theater piece in New York, the opera house, on Broadway or on Broadway, so you are really looking at an opera you’ve been wanting to come to for years and years.
When you auditioned the two other girls, how did you decide which one would be the one for the opera?
It was a really difficult audition. But it was pretty fun because we actually did have the auditions to work with, as we have now for some of the new series. I would say that the auditions for Miss Hickey came really early, almost as soon as we booked the show.
When did you begin performing in the opera?
I was in the school orchestra in seventh grade. I think that is where I really started having fun. In the summer, we were playing at New York City Ballet and we played to the audience, then we would go to the Opera House and we would rehearse and have lots of fun, and the next time we played it we sang.
So you first did it in the school orchestra in seventh grade?
We did it in seventh grade [at the Theater for a National Audience]. I think it might have been seventh. It was fun. I would say about two and a half years after that—at a conservatory—I did a second year with MFA and had fun doing a lot of different music and performing things. I played in a high school and a summer program and a concert series in the area. That was all fun and games for a while. I had to think about this one more critically to really figure out what I want it to do. I think a lot of the people we worked with were fans of the opera. They wanted to see
