Although Susan Graham is currently preparing for Iphigenia in Tauris in Toronto, she tweeted (via @mezzograham): Come to Blakemore Planetarium in Midland, at 5:30 on Monday, Sept 5, for the annual Susan Graham Day festivities! A "virtual" chat and DVDs!
Indeed, Happy Susan Graham Day! It's the sixth annual day of recognition of the fabulous mezzo soprano who grew up in Midland, Texas and graduated from Midland Lee High School, by the Midland Opera Theatre. They will celebrate with a free viewing of Mozart's "La Clemenza de Tito" at the Blakemore Planetarium at the Museum of the Southwest. Susan played Sesto in this 2006 production by the Paris Opera.
On August 24th, Susan performed the Ravel Sheherazade at Proms 53, which can still be heard viaBBC3 Radio (beginning at minute 24) through September 7th.
