Mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong has her hands full as Madame Butterfly's trusted servant, friend and confidant Suzuki in this summer's production of Puccini's beloved opera. She's no newbie to the role, having performed it previously with the Metropolitan Opera, Santa Fe Opera and even in Japan. One thing Elizabeth always brings with her on her operatic travels is her camera. She maintains a website, A Singer's Suitcase
, where she posts one photo every single day with a simple caption. She shared with us a small selection of photos she's taken during her stay in San Francisco for today's blog post. Take a look, and be sure to check out her website for a deeper glimpse into the life of a travelling opera singer. Elizabeth will be in San Francisco performing in Madame Butterfly
through July 9, so if you haven't seen her yet, don't miss your chance!
