“Confessions” voting has begun. “Confessions” is the contest launched by Seattle Opera to find a reality host for this summer’s production of the Ring. “Confessions” will be the culmination of the first phase of the Wallace Grant the Seattle Opera received last December.
Who will win? Each of the finalists brings their own zeal to the subject and their own creativity. Amy Tower is quirky, Jeff Powell is relaxed, Colton Carothers is energetic, Howard Wu seems like a real person, and Cassidy Brettler has an impressive resume. At least one contestant has mounted a campaign to win enough votes to be the “Confessions” host. Even though the idea is to find a host with little to know experience with opera, I do hope whomever wins spends an afternoon with Shaw’s “The Perfect Wagnerite.”
