She returned to the Washington Concert Opera to sing the title role in a concert version of Gounod’s rarely performed Sapho, before ending the year with a pair of Christmas concerts in Austria singing excerpts from Hansel and Gretel. The new year sees Kate in a run of staged and concert operas, starting with a reprise of one of her signature roles as the Composer in Ariadne auf Naxos, with Franz Welser-Möst conducting the Cleveland Orchestra. She sings a concert performance of La Damnation de Faust at La Philharmonie de Paris, before singing in two Katie Mitchell productions – Ariadne auf Naxos at Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, followed by a revival in Caen and Bordeaux of the critically acclaimed Miranda (After Henry Purcell), with Kate in the title role.
