Since making her professional opera debut with MOT in 1976, Kathleen Battle has soared to classical music heights, winning five Grammys and worldwide acclaim. This legendary soprano continues to hold audiences spellbound with her luminous voice that is “… without question, one of the very few most beautiful in the world.” (The Washington Post)
The range of Ms. Battle’s repertoire spans three centuries from Baroque era to contemporary works. She has enjoyed some of her greatest successes in the world’s premier opera houses and, in recital, has mesmerized audiences around the globe. Her highly anticipated return to the Met last fall received rave reviews.
“Ms. Battle sang with remarkable freshness and beauty … The final standing ovation was tumultuous.” (The New York Times’ Anthony Tommasini) “This was easily some of the best singing of her career … Mesmerizing …“ (WQXR, David Patrick Stearns).
