The Second Sight is an opera in three acts that both draws upon the bel canto tradition and explores new possibilities for dramatic vocal writing. The story centers around a young woman named Diskana who has a clairvoyant ability called "second sight." After Diskana foresees the death of a young child (Sashatya), and feels the pain of the child's grieving mother (Freyaria), she vows to defy fate and attempt to intervene to prevent the child's death. Supernatural forces ultimately weave together the lives of mystic, mother, and child in unexpected ways.

The opera was directed by Samantha Morrow and conducted by Matthew Chamberlain, starring internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Ola Rafalo as Diskana, with UB director of choirs - soprano Claudia Brown - as Freyaria, the composer herself as Sashatya/ Luciana and members of the Sotto Voce Vocal Collective (Beth White, Stephen Walley, Julia Anne Cordani, John Clayton, Brandon Mecklenburg) as meddling Spirits.
