Renowned lyrico-spinto soprano Kristin Lewis, a Little Rock native who began her voice studies under the tutelage of Dr. Martha Antolik at the University of Central Arkansas, makes her debut at the Metropolitan Opera tonight.

Following the withdrawal of superstar soprano Sondra Radvanovsky from the Met's production of "Aida," citing personal reasons, the Met engaged Lewis, currently based in Vienna, Austria, to replace Radvanovsky for the opera's January performances.

Lewis performed in Mahler's "Resurrection" symphony with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra in 2017, and in 2014 established an annual scholarship competition for young Arkansas vocalists: the Kristin Lewis Foundation.

Here's Lewis singing the role in 2015 at Teatro Regio di Torino.
