Isla Cortez Burdette is a fourth grader at Tate’s School and is really excited to be a part of A Christmas Carol. She was most recently seen on stage as the Page in Knoxville Opera’s Falstaff, young Carmen in Santa Fe Opera’s Carmen, and as Trouble in Central City Opera’s Madame Butterfly, where Opera News noted that she “played Trouble to perfection.” Isla has a passion for music and being on stage, and she also loves to read, dance, and let her imagination soar on her green swing.
