Seattle Opera Podcast

Oct 3, 2020

Seattle Opera’s current General Director, Christina Scheppelmann, chatted with Speight Jenkins, who led the company for three decades, from 1983 through 2014. Speight is a legend in the world of opera, and as you’ll hear in this podcast his inimitable, high-energy, opinionated charm is as powerful as ever. They discuss the great tenor Franco Corelli (this conversation was originally an intermission feature on a re-broadcast of Corelli’s Seattle debut) and Speight tells the story of how he first came to Seattle.
