This Boston Opera Singer is a versatile young artist and avid performer of new opera and chamber works. She most recently premiered the role of Nicola Tesla in Isaac Schankler’s Light and Power presented by Juventas New Music Ensemble. In May, as Boston played host to the 2011 Opera America Conference, she performed a duet from Rockland in the much-anticipated New Works Sampler and sang the role of Housekeeper in Guerilla Opera's presentation of Rudolph Rojahn's Heart of a Dog.

This Boston Opera Singer's work with Juventas New Music Ensemble has spanned several seasons. Most notably, in the 2010 Opera Project she sang the role of Woman in White in the U.S. premiere of Dreimaldrei gleich unendlich under the direction of Copeland Woodruff. The production won First Place in the Professional Category of the 2010 NOA Opera Production Competition. She also premiered Rudolph Rojahn's "Penelope Fragments" in the 2010 Winter Solitude Concert Series and appeared in their 2009 Winter Concert Series as the soprano soloist in "Amazing Effort Crystallized" by Christian Gentry and "Un~now" by Vera Ivanova.

Boston Opera Singer role

She was a member of OperaHub's inaugural Resident Company in the 2010-2011 season. Their first project was the conception, creation and execution of a "Choose Your Own Opera Adventure" cabaret. The result was an engaging evening that wove together music from Purcell to Puccini with an ending that allowed the audience to pick their poison. The spring held a full-scale production of Tom Johnson's minimalist The Four-Note Opera, in which this Denver Opera Singer portrayed The Soprano.

This Boston Opera Singer feels equally at home in the standard operatic and musical theater repertoire with roles including Pamina and Second Lady (The Magic Flute), Mary Warren (The Crucible), Cherubino (Le nozze di Figaro), Belinda (Dido and Aeneas), Flora (The Turn of the Screw) and Charlotte (A Little Night Music). In the summer of 2009, she was a young artist with Northern Arizona University's Flagstaff in Fidenza program, where she sang Violetta in Act II of La Traviata at the historic Magnani Theater.

  1. Jacob Krause says:

    “…[This singer] was, by far, the strongest player in the cast. Her pinnacle moment was in the third act court room scene when she recanted her confession. Against…[the] stiff portrayal of John Proctor and the overly exuberant…Abigail Williams, [she] was a breath of fresh air.” – -J. Jacob Krause for Boston Theater Review

  2. Matthew Guerrieri says:

    “[This singer] as the hesitant accuser Mary Warren, sung with substance and acted with clarity…” – Matthew Guerrieri for The Boston Globe

  3. Bryce Lambert says:

    “…hilariously performed by a cast that well over-shadowed some of the park and barking we sometimes even see on Boston’s main operatic stages…” – Bryce Lambert for BOSTON lowbrow

  4. Peter Van Zandt says:

    “[This singer] performance was a well-rounded package – her quality vocal performance was enhanced by a captivating stage presence and convincing body language…” – Peter Van Zandt Lane for The Boston Music Intelligencer

  5. Kelly Dean Hansen says:

    “The demanding title role is double cast. [This singer] performs tonight and Sunday, while Sarah Davis takes the stage Saturday. While [she] projects more defiance at the end and Davis a bit more vulnerability, both are splendid, and are on stage by themselves, singing demanding music, for the entire last third of the piece.” – Kelly Dean Hansen for Daily Camera
