  • Nadine Sierra - There's a Place for Us (Trailer & Interview Extended Version)

    The debut recording by the young American soprano Nadine Sierra shares its title and message with the first line of "Somewhere" from "West Side Story", with music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. “I wanted this album to give a little bit of hope that there is always going to be a place for everyone,” she says, her voice ringing with the same passion that has filled opera houses around the globe. “This is my way of putting that idea into action, to spread a positive message.”


  • Nadine Sierra - There's a Place for Us (Interview 3)

    "There’s a Place for Us" embraces America’s multicultural, multi-ethnic mix, with its eclectic choice of arias and songs. “I wanted to send an alternative message of positivity, unification, acceptance of all people no matter what race, no matter what sexuality, no matter what religion, no matter what anything,” comments Nadine Sierra. “I feel deep down that we can make a change in the right direction and that the right direction is about uniting people.”


  • Nadine Sierra - There's a Place for Us (Interview 2)

    Nadine Sierra discovered opera as a child and became hooked after her mother borrowed a video of La bohème from the local library. That first encounter with Puccini’s music proved life-changing. She found she could touch listeners through song, a gift enhanced when she joined the chorus of Palm Beach Opera in her early teens.
