Her American debut was as Avis in The Wreckers for Bard SummerScape in New York, and she continued on to sing the title role of Rusalka in Valladolid, Spain, and La Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaroin Kristiansand, Norway. Most recently, Sky debuted Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni with Garsington Opera and again in Paris at the Théâtre des Champs Élysées.
