Linda Watson - Iris Vermillion



Mezzosoprano Alicia Maria Cecotti wrote:

"Linda Watson - a voice that transports me and at the same time blew me away with not only by the size, but by the beauty, the color, the fluidity, the pianos, the fortes, and at times I felt as though I were water flowing through a harp. Moreover,  she is a consummate artist who not only knows her role but knows exactly what she wants in that role."
