St. Paul, Minn. — Mezzo-soprano Adrianna Zabala blew us all away as the little wooden boy who came to life in the Minnesota Opera's production of "Pinocchio."

She's got pipes, comic flair, and is a natural on the stage.

And she also takes her talent and know-how to give back by working with young aspiring opera singers at the University of Minnesota in her thriving voice studio.

Adriana sings this weekend in the University of Minnesota Opera Theatre's production of "Parables. She stopped by to talk music and share some of her desert-island disc playlist with me.
