Interview with baritone Ivan Griffin

Baritone Ivan Griffin, who made his debut this past weekend with New Orleans Opera, is the subject of a terrific interview in Examiner.com by Givonna Joseph.

Here’s what Ivan had to say about us:

In Freedom Ride I played the role of Clayton, a young activist, who recruits other young people to participate in the “rides.” It is one of the most emotionally challenging roles that I’ve sung in quite some time. It was difficult to not get caught up. The work is powerful, poignant, and significant. It’s a story of which we need to be reminded. It’s a show of which I am honored to be a part.
