This season Cecelia Hall can be heard singing two roles for the first time: Humperdinck's Hänsel and Marguerite in La damnation de Faust. Her Mozart roles in Frankfurt to date were Dorabella (Così fan tutte) and Zerlina (Don Giovanni), which will be followed, this season, by 2nd Lady (Die Zauberflöte) and Cherubino (Le nozze di Figaro). The American mezzo-soprano also enjoyed great success here with Purcell's Dido and Fulvia in Gluck's Ezio. She graduated from the Juilliard School of Music in New York and has sung in Manon and Iphigénie en Tauride at the Metropolitan Opera, Elektra, Lucia di Lammermoor and Annio in La clemenza di Tito at the Lyric Opera of Chicago and her first Sesto in La clemenza di Tito at the Opera Theatre of Saint Louis. She also sang Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia) at the Canadian Opera Company in Toronto, Cherubino at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich and Philadelphia Opera and the Composer (Ariadne auf Naxos) under Vladimir Jurowski in the Moscow Philharmonie. Other engagements have taken Cecelia Hall to places including the opera houses in Seattle and Santa Fe and the Aix-en-Provence Festival. This award winning artist also enjoys a busy concert career, appearing recently in venues including the Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall and the Mostly Mozart Festival.
