The participants include sopranos Mikayla Sager, Arianna Rodriguez, and Olivia Smith; mezzo-sopranos Gabrielle Beteag and Nikola Prinz; tenors Victor Cardamone, Edward Graves, and Moisés Salazar; and bass-baritone Jongwan Han. Of these artists, Beteag, Cardamone, Graves, and Sager are second-year fellows.
Artists selected as pianist coaches includ Yang Lin and Marika Yasuda; Yasuda is making a return for a second year.
Every one of the Adler Fellows will be featured in a year-end concert accompanied by the San Francisco Opera Orchestra in December of 2023. They will also engage in preparing and rehearsing roles as well as taking on performance opportunities throughout their time with the program.
