LINK Emerging Artist Fellowship
Anna is honoured to have been chosen as a 2020-2021 AOC LINK Emerging Artist.
"Through the training and mentorship provided by the Fellowship, I'd like to further diversify my portfolio and hone my professional and leadership skills. I'm interested in exploring ways I can use my different platforms within the industry for advocacy and collaborating with my peers to realize the future of opera we desire."

"What struck me about this is you have made the medium a huge asset."
"The directionality is really effective, driven by the characters’ eyes all the time." - David Perlman, WholeNote
"Using the medium of film actually provides me with an additional layer of storytelling...I’m able to manipulate what the audience sees and when. There will be as much dramatic interaction as you would expect in a live performance, bar the singers touching each other."
“Our production emphasizes a survivor first narrative and having subjective narration from the female characters enhances this concept.”
- Anna Theodosakis
Anna and Sue-Ann Staff of the Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery pair the characters of Don Giovanni with the personalities of wine.
