A Note from Norah
Sing out loud,
We sing when our hearts are too full for speech.
"Transparency and integrity are core values in my life and work. On stage, no matter the genre, I strive for a sense of holistic integrity, and I burrow deep to ground each performance choice in reality and honesty. As a singer-actor, I strive tenaciously for a seamlessly-integrated performance, one in which you will know that, when that character sings, it is because their emotions have outgrown spoken word, and when they dance, it is because no movement less expressive will do."
With over 100 leading roles under her belt, Minneapolis-based Norah Long has built an award-winning performance career spanning genres of classical and contemporary drama, musical theater, opera, film, and concert stage. Norah also works as a stage director, music director, teacher, and composer. For more, visit her Biography page.
