ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Mid-Prairie’s very own Jessica Faselt was the winner of the $15,000 Birgit Nilsson Award after competing in the Metropolitan Opera National Council auditions on Sunday, April 29.

Faselt prepared herself before the competition by watching a documentary made by the Metropolitan Opera that follows the lives of people who were in the competition before. By watching this beforehand, Faselt felt prepared for her opera journey.

Since she competed for five years, by time the big competition came, she realized what her voice can do and was ready. Being one of the five winners has impacted her life greatly and has started her international career.

“This competition was the ultimate audition since so many agents were watching,” Faselt said. “It is like the Super Bowl of opera.”
