What does it take to WOW the refined world of high Opera? Join us as mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong talks about Opera, song, and life.
Born and raised in northcentral Pennsylvania, opera singer Elizabeth DeShong has been lauded in North America and Europe for her "well-cultivated" and "big, bright and pleasing" voice; EDGE San Francisco said, "“...DeShong sings like a vocal giant. Her lowest notes have body and depth; her midrange is rich and compelling; and her highs are dispensed with a freedom that many a mezzo daily prays for. ”
She has performed with The Metropolitan Opera, English National Opera, Canadian Opera Company, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Radio Symphonie Orchestre Wien, among others, and at the Glyndebourne Festival in England.
DeShong received a master's degree from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, after which she was accepted into the young artist program at the Lyric Opera of Chicago's Ryan Opera Center.
The recipient of numerous awards, Ms. DeShong received the Washington National Opera’s “Artist of the Year Award” in 2010 for her debut performance as the Composer in Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos. Her portrayal of Maffio Orsini in the San Francisco Opera’s Lucrezia Borgia was widely released on DVD.
Further performances of note include Maffio Orsini in Lucrezia Borgia with San Franciso Opera and English National Opera, Angelina in La Cenerentola at the Canadian Opera Company, Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream at Lyric Opera of Chicago, and her sensational Rosina in THE BARBER OF SEVILLE with the Los Angeles Opera.

My guest tonight in my Cabaret Series is Yvonne Constant. Yvonne Constant began her career as a ballet dancer, but because of her comedic flair and charismatic personality, the other dancers urged her to become a musical comedy performer instead. Yvonne was cast to play multiple roles for the Broadway production of "La Plume de Ma Tante" and won a Tony award. When she did "The Gay Life" with Barbara Cook, Yvonne received a New York Drama Critics Citation as on of the season's Most Promising Actresses. Yvonne was chosen by Richard Rodgers for a principal role in "No Strings," "She had 45 appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson."
In addition, she has narrated or dubbed over 20 French movies including the much acclaimed, "Parfait", and was also the voice of Simone de Bauvoir. In 2007, Yvonne was one of the stars in the City Center rival of "Follies" in New York. She received 14 rave reviews for her rendition of "Ah, Paris!"
Yvonne's memorable one woman show, "Yvonne Constant Sings Yves Montand" was standing room only in theatres and concert halls in New York, Chicago, and Washington D.C.
In recent years Yvonne has performed in several cabaret venues in the New York Metropolitan area including The Reprise Room, Danny's Skylight Room, The National Arts Club and the critically acclaimed Metropolitan Room where she appears regularly always with constantly updated shows. For many years her shows have been presented by Cabaret Legend Jan Wallman and her music director since 2006 has been the multi faceted Russ Kassoff. Yvonne is playing the Metropolitan Room the day after this podcast airs live, on November 17, 2015.

First Guest.....Marsha Scarbrough, author of Honey in the River: Shadow, Sex and West African Spirituality discusses with us tonight her personal journey and discovery of the Orishas, Goddess Archetypes of West Africa, all while under the influence of her babalawo, or Yoruban lover who acted as her spiritual leader. We'll talk about her personal soap opera and the growth she gleaned from that tangled relationship, as well as discuss what is Ifa and Ifa voodoo, who are the feminine orishas, the trickster and how Ifa informs our contemporary lives. This is a very heartfelt and candid look at how important it is to look at our own shadow, and in this case, how Marsha was willing to lie and betray other women in order to feel loved. How she, and many women, are in denial about being in abusive relationships and willingly take part in self-sabotaging behavior and allow themselves to be exploited by others in positions of power.
Second Guests.....Phyllis Currott and Angie Buchanan, prominent Pagan movers and shakers involved with planning the Council for the Parliament of World Religions will give us a behind the scenes look at this incredible inter-faith gathering that happened in October 2015 in Salt Lake City, UT, and we'll hear what's ahead for the next Parliament.
