Hailed by Opera News as a “particularly vivid” performer, soprano Rebecca Nathanson is in her second season with the Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artist Program, and she will make her LA Opera debut in 2014 as Crobyle in Thais. In 2013, she made her debut with the Aspen Music Festival in the title role of L’Incoronazione di Poppea. Highlights of the 2012/13 season included her international debut at the Royal Opera House Muscat under the baton of Lorin Maazel in La Bohème, where the Times of Oman praised her “delightful, fiery, independent Musetta” and “layered and decadent” singing. She collaborated with The Colburn School as a soloist in the Fauré Requiem and Haydn Paukenmasse, and also in a recital of Britten songs to celebrate the centennial of the composer’s birth. She began the season at The Castleton Festival singing both Musetta and Frasquita in Carmen. You can follow Ms. Nathanson at www.RebeccaNathansonSoprano.com.
