2005 Adlers: New kids on the block

The SF Opera Center just announced today the ten
Adler Fellows for 2005. They are:

Jane Archibald (Nova Scotia, Canada)
Kimwana Doner (Detroit, Michigan)
Nikki Einfeld (Manitoba, Canada)
Elza van den Heever (Johannesburg, South Africa)
Gerald Thompson (Pocahontas, Arkansas)
Thomas Glenn (Calgary, Canada)
Sean Panikkar (Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania)
baritones Lucas Meachem (Carthage, North Carolina)
Eugen Brancoveanu (Arad, Romania)
Joshua Bloom (Melbourne, Australia)

Archibald, Einfeld, Glenn, Meachem and Bloom are
2nd year returning Adler Fellows; the others were
selected from this summer's Merola Opera participants.

Notably, no mezzos selected as fellows this year.
These artists will be featured in a trio of one-act
operas: Pergolesi's "La Serva Padrona"; Darius Milhaud's
"Le Pauvre Matelot," and Donizetti's "Rita," all staged
by Christopher Alden for the annual Showcase
presentation, March 11-20 at Fort Mason’s Cowell
