Description

Her expressive, rich vocalism, elegant stage presence and exciting theatrical skills have made mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves one of today’s most exciting vocal stars. USA Today identified her as one of “the singers most likely to be an operatic superstar of the 21st century.” Performing a broad repertoire in the world’s great opera houses, Graves is particularly well-known for her signature portrayals of the title roles in Carmen and Samson et Dalila, both of which partnered her with the great Placido Domingo, among others. She has also performed a wide-ranging repertoire with leading symphony orchestras and conductors throughout the world.
