Grammy Award-winning soprano Christine Brewer is “the uncommon singer of her vocal type whose voice can slice through a thick orchestra while still sounding lustrous” (Anthony Tommasini, New York Times). In concert settings, she has appeared with celebrated orchestras throughout the world, most notably giving over 100 performances of Strauss’s Four Last Songs and singing for the reopening of Covent Garden. On the opera stage, Brewer has received international acclaim for her portrayal of the title role in Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos, with additional performance highlights including Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde at San Francisco Opera, Gluck’s Alceste with Santa Fe Opera, Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten at Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Paris Opera, and Britten’s Albert Herring at Santa Fe Opera and the Los Angeles Opera. In this master class, she coaches accomplished Bienen School voice and opera program students.
