    Soprano Karen Early Evans is a member of Seattle Opera’s chorus. She made her Seattle Opera debut last August as one of Turandot’s Handmaidens, and returns as the Mistress of the Novices in “Suor Angelica,” which plays through May 18, 2013. Evans also played a nun in Tacoma Musical Playhouse’s recent “The Sound of Music,” in which she sang “Climb ev’ry mountain” as the Mother Abbess.

    In this passage from “Suor Angelica,” the Mistress of the Novice explains the blessing of the golden fountain to her novices: “It is a shining sign of the Lord's goodness. Three evenings each year, God allows us to see the sun turn the fountain all to gold.” “What happens on the other evenings?” asks one of the Novices (sung here by Melissa Plagemann). “Either we leave chapel too early, and the sun is high; or else we go out too late, and it has already set.” Gary Thor Wedow conducts the orchestra of Seattle Opera.
