It is with great sorrow that all of us associated with Opera by Request received the news on Christmas Day of the untimely passing of Alla Ossipova. It was only a few short months ago that Alla delivered a stunning performance of Fricka in Wagner’s Die Walkure, the latest in several superb performances which Alla delivered over the years.
To commemorate her life, her husband George Ossipov requested a concert be presented in her memory. A number of singers who performed with Alla in recent years will share their talents in her memory. Donations collected at the concert will be shared by Opera by Request and Summer Opera Lyric Theatre, the two venues where Alla was most recently able to showcase and develop her talents.
