French soprano Norah Amsellem made a memorable Seattle Opera debut in 2004 as Gilda in Rigoletto
. She has since returned for roles such as Elvira in I puritani
, Micaëla in Carmen
, and Musetta in La bohème
. In her familiar yet haunting aria “Caro nome,” the lovesick girl muses over the false name given her by her duplicitous suitor. Edoardo Müller conducts the orchestra of Seattle Opera. Photo by Rozarii Lynch.
