Humans of the MET: Dora Figueroa

"I find it immensely rewarding being with the kids and watching them grow. Yes, it can be exhausting to be with both kids the entire day - it was really telling last season, when Rafi and I played Elektra together, that we still found it more relaxing to come to work! But what we find is that you can concentrate and totally immerse yourself in the music without thoughts of anything else - and that often feels much easier than constantly attending to the needs of two young toddlers!
