Merola Grand Finale 2012

​The Merola Grand Finale 2012 took place on the stage of the War Memorial Opera House, San Francisco, California.  According to reviewers, "There were a few standouts among the sopranos also.  Suzanne Rigden had a beautiful lucidity as a rebuffed ghost in Lully's Alceste ... and sang Zdenka in Ich danke Fraulein ... Aber der Richtige" with characteristic flexibility."  (The Opera Tattler, Aug 19, 2012) ​​​
