Since graduating from SFCM, Esther Tonea (MM ‘18) participated in the 2019 Merola Opera Program and was named an Adler Fellow at San Francisco Opera. It’s been a big couple of years for the rising star soprano, who didn’t originally intend to become a singer.

From Mozart’s Così fan tutte, the duet "Fra gli amplessi" was an ideal

vehicle for the gleaming tones and impeccable dynamic control

of soprano Esther Tonea.
