Check out this complete performance of Rachel's debut with Opera Paralèlle in 2014.  In a seamless melding of two pieces, a theater troupe of desert wanderers sings the jazz-infused melodies of Kurt Weill’s "Mahagonny Songspiel". They’re searching for paradise — and that now-rarest of commodities, water — in a shattered world. Along the way, they discover not paradise, but an audience for their performance of Poulenc’s outrageously surreal satire "Les mamelles de Tirésias" in which Rachel plays Thérèse/Tirésias.
