I am an ambassador for The Fat Lady. Opera resonates with your soul. Opera is a shared emotion. It is the language of the heart in different keys. Tamir Chasson, with his vision and passion, is able to make this visible and audible in an accessible way. He deserves a large audience for The Fat Lady. Because opera can make one feel so many things, I want to introduce as many people as possible to the musical heart language of The Fat Lady.
