Layla is featured in this month’s Final Note Magazine (accompanied by pictures by Frances Marshall Photography): click here for full interview. Here’s a snippet about Layla’s dream roles:
I feel so incredibly grateful for all of the opportunities I’ve had, and all of the amazing roles I’ve played already. I’m singing my first Handel role this year, which I’m really excited about. Mozart has been a big part of my life, so I’m thrilled to sing his music at the Salzburg Festival next year. I’m excited to see where my voice leads me now that I’m in my thirties. I feel like Strauss is in my future. I’d love to sing Desdemona and Tatyana one day, if they end up suiting me. But, I try to take each day as it comes, and be thankful for what I’m singing now.
