Patricia Racette is an opera superstar who has graced the stages of the Metropolitan Opera, Opera National de Paris, and Lyric Opera of Chicago just to name a few.  This June she will be making her debut at the New York Philharmonic. As part of “The Met: Live in HD,” her recent performance as Cio-Cio San in “Madame Butterfly” was shown in movie theatres across the globe.  She recently recorded a new CD, “Diva on Detour.” Fans can see her perform selections from the album live in New York City this week, and at the famous Ravinia Festival in Chicago this June. In between performances at the Washington National Opera and 54 Below, Ms. Racette was kind enough to speak with AfterEllen and give us a peek into the fantastical world of opera.
