Get ready for a long conversation between good friends on this episode of the podcast. Mezzo-soprano Megan Marino and I have known each other for nearly 12 years, and she is our Despina in COSI FAN TUTTE this summer. We get into how she’s a lot like Despina in real life, her journey with classical singing after starting as a jazz vocal major in college, and how her previous impressions regarding the treatment of women in Cosi has changed now that she’s dug deeper into Mozart’s music.
