SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE PRESENTS

SUSAN GRAHAM

THE STUDIO, SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE
TUESDAY 1ST MAY 2012

Susan Graham has for the better part of a decade impressed audiences with her creamy singing and chiselled characterisations.
The New York Times

Graham's mezzo-soprano is a voice without regrets, healthy, rounded, ineffably musical, and eager for a challenge.
New Yorker.


Sydney Opera House is delighted to present a special one-off intimate performance by “America’s favourite mezzo” (Gramophone) Susan Graham and her longtime collaborator, pianist Malcolm Martineau as part of the Utzon Music Series 2012.

From song recitals to title roles on the world’s great opera stages, Graham is a versatile singer universally loved for her expressive tone and heartfelt performances. She has sung in the great opera houses of the world, including Milan's La Scala, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Opéra national de Paris and will now add the iconic Sydney Opera House to the list.

Coming off her phenomenal success in the title role of Xerxes at San Francisco Opera, Susan Graham will present a program inspired by iconic female characters of history, literature, and song. The evening will include Shakespeare’s Ophelia as interpreted by Berlioz, Lady Macbeth by Horovitz and Goethe’s Mignon.

Graham has been influential in the creation of new American opera. She developed the role of Sister Helen Prejean in Jake Heggie's Dead Man Walking for San Francisco Opera, and created leading roles in two Metropolitan Opera world premieres: An American Tragedy by Tobias Picker and The Great Gatsby by John Harbison.
