Widely acclaimed as one of opera's leading sopranos, Racette has made her mark as the star in operas ranging from Madame Butterfly, La Boh?me and Tosca to Peter Grimes and Dialogues of the Carmelites in the world's most prestigious venues, including The Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, The Paris Opera and San Francisco Opera, among many others, and on worldwide HD Broadcasts to millions. But before her career on the opera stage, Racette sang jazz, cabaret and jewels from the Great American Songbook. Now she brings her career full circle with an intimate evening featuring songs by Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Edith Piaf and other contemporary popular composers. Says The New York Times: "Her singing was robust, nuanced and passionate, befitting a performer of her skill and experience." Don't miss this chance to see her at 54 Below and experience this opera Diva up close and personal, singing songs near and dear to her heart.
