Cabiria Jacobsen, mezzo-soprano

"What is love, 'tis not hereafter, Present mirth hath present laughter: What's to come, is still unsure. In delay there lies no plenty, Then come kiss me, sweet and twenty: Youth's a stuff will not endure." - William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

Cabiria Jacobsen has been praised for her “mezzo of richness and power” and for her "Bea Arthur-esque timing." Beginning with the New York City Opera Children's Chorus, she spent many happy years performing professionally throughout the United States. After receiving a diagnosis of infective endocarditis while 30 weeks pregnant with her daughter, she had an emergency c-section and open heart surgery on the same day. Following these events, Cabiria has taken an extended break from performing.

----------------------------------

Performing in operas and musicals was the true love of my life. In some ways, it still is. Artists care for their art as a mother cares for her child. It may seem selfish; it isn't. As I try to make a new self, and a new life, I'd like this site to hold a place in the universe for Cabiria Jacobsen the singer, the actor, the lady with a knack for comedy, the performer. She's out there, or in here, somewhere, and I'd like to be able to say hi sometimes. I hope you will, too.
