Come now, be content.
I will come back to you, I swear I will;
And you will know me still.
I shall be only a little taller
Than when I went. ~Edna St. Vincent Millay

Andrea Gruber talks
Andrea Gruber, a soprano who we heard at Seattle Opera last spring as Minnie in La Fanciulla del West, is talking publicly about her struggles with drug addiction. She was on the fast track at the Metropolitan Opera in the early 1990’s, but her addiction quickly got in the way of her work. She was “not rehired,” as she says, until 2000, after she had gotten clean. Read the candid and inspirational article here. (The New York Times requires that you log in, free of charge.)
