American soprano Alyson Cambridge is one of the most diverse and compelling vocal artists on the scene today. She is praised for her “powerful, clear voice” by The New York Times, hailed by critics for her “radiant, vocally assured, dramatically subtle and artistically imaginative” performances (Washington Post), and celebrated for her “sultry and seductive readings” (Opera News). Combined with a striking stage presence and affecting musical and dramatic interpretation, she has nearly two decades of success on the world’s leading opera and concert stages, including The Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, Washington National Opera at The Kennedy Center, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Los Angeles Opera, London’s Royal Albert Hall, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Vienna Konzerthaus, and New York’s Broadway Theatre, to name a few.

Last season, Cambridge was a major feature at the 2022 Glimmerglass Festival, where she assumed the title role of The Passion of Mary Cardwell Dawson for its indoor premiere, performed as  Elsa in The Sound of Music, and as Ann in the world premiere of Damien Geter’s and Lila Palmer’s Holy Ground; additionally, Cambridge took on the role of Coretta Scott King in I Dream with both Opera Carolina and Charlottesville Opera, and outside of the opera world, she was featured in the season premiere of the reboot of the 21st season of NBC’s Law and Order, appearing alongside Norm Lewis.  Prior to this, she sang Gala Concerts for Toledo Opera, Levine Music, Glimmerglass Opera, and the National Opera Chorus at Carnegie Hall. This season’s engagements include the title role of Tosca with Opera Carolina, leading as Hannah in The Merry Widow with Toledo Opera, and reprising Elsa in The Sound of Music with Arizona Opera. She will also perform in recital for Holy City Arts & Lyric Opera, and join the Mostly Modern Festival in both the Netherlands and Saratoga Springs. Next season will see Cambridge reprise Elsa once again in the Glimmerglass production of The Sound of Music. [read more...]
