Staying Alive

The second video in our Staying Alive series features mezzo-soprano Jennifer Roderer in her kitchen, singing the role of Mrs. Bass in Tobias Picker’s Emmeline.

In this aria, Mrs. Bass leads the girls of the boarding house in prayer as they clear their plates and get ready for bed.

Filmed from Roderer’s home, you’ll hear her husband play the piano and see her daughter as Emmeline.
