Sophie Koch, mezzo-soprano

Sophie Koch makes her Metropolitan Opera debut singing the role of Charlotte opposite Jonas Kauffmann in Massenet's Werther. From a studio in the Lincoln Center, she speaks with Angela Mitchell about what's special about French opera, singing across from Jonas, and channeling the rawest of emotions into an unforgettable performance.
