This past year she performed the role of Aveline Mortimer in Elizabeth Cree by Kevin Puts, and The Lady with the Cake Box in Postcard from Morocco by Dominic Argento, both mainstage productions with Eastman Opera Theater, and both music directed by her primary coach, Professor Timothy Long. In 2020, Susannah was asked by Eastman’s Dean Marie Rolf to perform in her “Debussy Premieres” lecture recital, performed in Hatch Hall at Eastman, and at the J.P. Morgan Library in New York City, alongside Anthony Dean Griffey, tenor, and Randall Scarlata, baritone. This production featured a New York City premiere, a US premiere, and a world premiere.
