She says in the article: “I think what led me down the Adès path” says Luna “is that (MET associate artistic administrator) Lenore Rosenberg heard me in the Renata Tebaldi Competition in San Marino. I was singing crazy, high stuff, and I think she thought that maybe I could do Ariel. A couple of months later I did my first stage audition at the MET… Six months later they had me back to sing…”.
