On the second day Friday March 8, the opera aria evening will explore two contrasting portrayals of operatic heroines; victims vs victors. Elena and Sérine met in Barcelona, Spain in 2004. Since then, their lives have crossed one another's path in cities and towns of Italy, France, South Korea, and finally, Singapore. Their friendship and musicianship fueled by their unfading love for music made their numerous collaborations possible, including many impromptu appearances such as these recitals.
