Early in her career, Alex Penda gained notices for her fearless portrayals of bel canto heroines. In recent seasons, her dramatic approach has instigated forays into weightier Germanic repertoire. This summer, she takes on the title role in a new production of Salome at Santa Fe Opera. MARIA MAZZARO speaks with the Bulgarian soprano about learning to love Strauss.
