2019 was a very busy year for Ms. Rookey. On the operatic front, she brought in the year with Amahl and the Night Visitors as the Mother. She was then in Madama Butterfly as Mrs. Pinkerton and was shortly thereafter in a production of Gianni Schicchi with Opera Theater of the Rockies as Nella. She then starred as Laetitia in The Old Maid and the Thief with Opera in the Rock to stellar reviews. Throughout the year, she was engaged in productions of HMS Pinafore and The Wizard of Oz as a swing, several musical revues and cultural festivals, and private concert work. In January 2020, she returned to her home on the operatic stage with Opera in the Rock as Della in a new production of The Gift of the Magi.
Moving forward in the rest of 2020, she will be appearing in La Traviata in May, Mozart's Mass in C Minor in June, and much, much more. She is especially looking forward to joining the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Presidential Library, and Opera in the Rock in Scalia/Ginsburg. She has the honor of playing Ruth Bader Ginsburg in this production hosted by the Clintons.
