Mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke on Berlioz and Steve Jobs
Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke has played Apple co-founder Steve Job's wife Lauren, and mountaineer Rob Hall's wife Jan Arnold in contemporary, world premiere operas. She says she relishes the challenge of being the first singer to tackle a role. The (Re)volution of Steve Jobs earned her adoring reviews. But Sasha's next appointment is with the classical repertoire and one of her great loves, the work of French composers, for a three-centre tour with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
