Laura, At Last!
An interview by Suzanne Calvin
Soprano Laura Claycomb’s official biography tells us that “Her delicacy, refinement and theatricality in high-flying repertoire make her one of the foremost lyric coloraturas of her generation.” All of which is perfectly true – but that just barely scratches the surface. In addition to Miss Claycomb’s phenomenal natural talent and artistry, she’s an extraordinary personality (and a charming writer); as revealed in this Q&A with the Dallas Opera’s Suzanne Calvin.
Calvin: First things first, our audience will want to know why it took this long for a “Texas girl” to make her long-awaited debut with the Dallas Opera.
Claycomb: I have wanted to sing in Dallas since the beginning of my career, and made it a priority of my agent to find me a project to sing at Dallas Opera. Thank goodness it’s finally happening! This is a dream come true!
