Kathryn Lewek's Excellent Adventure

Kathryn Lewek, a Rochester Classical Idol winner and Eastman graduate, will make her Metropolitan Opera Debut on December 28, 2013 singing the role of Queen of the Night in Mozart's The Magic Flute.

Actually, "excellent" is more like "terrifying." 

During a performance of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, soprano Kathryn Lewek and a few other singers were asked to approach an open-air stage in Lake Constance by boat. But on Tuesday, the vessel flipped. Click the link below to hear her describe the accident at the Bregenz Festival in Austria.  (First you'll hear a few seconds of her singing an art song by Cary Ratcliff.)
