Donna Elvira of Anoka: Ellie Dehn at the Metropolitan Opera

Posted at 11:24 AM on March 7, 2012 by John Birge (1 Comments)

Nice to see a familiar name among the stars of the Metropolitan Opera. Ellie Dehn ("DEEN") grew up listening to Mozart in Anoka. Now she's singing Mozart with the Metropolitan Opera. She sings the role of Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni. You'll hear her in our live broadcast this Saturday, March 10, at 11am.

Ellie's career has brought her back to Minnesota a couple of times in recent years, visiting the MPR studio to sing La Boheme in 2010, and Romeo et Juliette in 2008.
