Sarah Levine Simon enjoyed a dual career as a musician (opera singer) and writer. She appeared as a soloist throughout the United States and Europe, singing difficult soprano repertory, such as Bach Cantata No. 51, Lukas Foss’s “Time Cycle,” and the lyric soprano operatic repertory. Writing began for the soprano as a way to access the literary texts she sang, and it led to her creating her own narratives. Writing credits include: Bernardo’s Farewell and Mouse Music, stories for actors and orchestra, produced with a grant from The National Endowment for the Arts and narrated by actress Tovah Feldshuh, among others. She wrote two plays on commission for Plays for Living. The Portrait, written as a radio play for National Public Radio in 1983, finally received a full production by the Ad Lib Theater Company at Theater 54 in New York City in 2014, to critical acclaim. She wrote, produced, and sang as the “gourmet diva” five musical videos to introduce classical music and have a little fun with it, as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSJs9EEzJnA. In February of 2017, The Dressmaker’s Secret, a play co-written by Mihai Grunfeld received a full production at Theater 59 in New York City. With Winged Victory, she made her debut as a novelist.
