Life in the Pit

48. Singing for Cirque Du Soleil - Rochelle Collins, vocalist

May 7, 2021

Rochelle Collins lives in Las Vegas, NV where she has been a performer for Cirque Du Soleil for 19 years, first for the show MYSTERE, and currently for KA.  Her work as a vocalist puts her onstage (and over stage) in the spotlight, but she also performs as accompaniment to the action (in other words, as a pit musician).  She talks about what it's like to rehearse and perform a show for Cirque, and we also briefly discuss her other theatre career with shows such as OklahomaInto the WoodsFiddler on the Roof, and other shows and operas.  You can hear a sample of Rochelle's work with Cirque du Soleil at
