“‘Everything that you can become is already in you!’ My main dream is to be heard through the prism of my voice and soul, and I am sure that the Studio programme will help me to reveal even more my abilities and acquire new knowledge for the stage. Thank you to Dutch National Opera for the opportunity to live in music and to create interesting projects!”
