Emerging soprano Greta Baldwin, praised for her beautiful timbre and artistry, has been heard on such stages as the Santa Fe Opera, Chicago Opera Theater, Palm Beach Opera, Opera Santa Barbara and the Castleton Festival. Recently, she made her debut at Opera Company of Philadelphia as Frasquita in Carmen after covering the role of Princess Lan in Tan Dun’s Tea: A Mirror of Soul with that company in 2010. Other recent engagements included performing the role of Micaëla in Carmen at the Arenes d’Avenches.
Ms. Baldwin performed Faure’s Requiem in a return to the Rockford Symphony, where she also sang Orff’s Carmina Burana, in which her voice, “soared with such natural grace that its scintillating energy drew an audible gasp from concergoers” (Rockford Register Star). She also recently earned great acclaim as Miss Jessel in The Turn of the Screw under Lorin Maazel at the Castleton Festival in Virginia. Anne Midgette of The Washington Post wrote that she “offered some of the biggest and most climactic sounds of the night.” Philip Kennicott proclaimed, “the most gratifying singing came from soprano Greta Baldwin, as Miss Jessel. Baldwin has a large voice… it is a real instrument, professionally and confidently used and in service of a sound dramatic conception of the role.” She returned to Castleton to reprise the role the following year.
