Susan Graham Sings at Carnegie Hall and Stars Opposite Domingo at Teatro Real Madrid and Metropolitan Opera

“Susan Graham, one of the leading mezzo-sopranos of our time,…is in her absolute prime.” – Denver Post (July 2010)

On December 9, “peerless American mezzo”* Susan Graham joins Maestro Edo de Waart and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s for a performance of Berg’s Seven Early Songs at Carnegie Hall. Graham continues the holiday season on December 15-16 in “Christmas at the Basilica” with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, a concert that will be nationally televised in Canada. For this performance, she will also be joined by the Choeur des Enfants de Montréal and Maestro Kent Nagano in a program of holiday music. Graham kicks off the New Year at Teatro Real Madrid from January 13-25, starring opposite Plácido Domingo in the title role of Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride, an opera on which she has already “put her own stamp” (Chicago Tribune). She takes the role to her home company, New York’s Metropolitan Opera, for several dates in February and March. At Houston Grand Opera, she reprises her “breath stopping” (Independent, UK) portrayal of the Composer in Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos, and with the Philadelphia Orchestra, she sings Marguerite in Berlioz’s The Damnation of Faust, in which role the New York Times pronounced her “terrific.”
