Kathy Geary, fresh from Texas, began her operatic career with a stellar debut as Mimi in Puccini's La boheme in Busseto Italy. Both Carlo Bergonzi and Renata Tebaldi, Ms. Geary's early mentors, proclaimed her “a rare voice, a gifted singer and a moving performer.”|
Shortly after this triumph, Ms Geary was forced, for personal reasons, to take a hiatus from her operatic career. She has recently made her comeback and according to Metropolitan Opera tenor and diction coach Nico Castel, “We’re lucky to have Kathy back in the business; we need more singers like this.”
Maestra Fiora Contino calls Geary “a natural Verdian soprano who understands the traditions and has a good instinct for the vocal line.”
Recently Ms. Geary appeared with the New Jersey Concert Opera Orchestra as Siegrune in a full-length concert performance of Die Walküre. Further engagements included the Countess in Le Nozze di Figaro with the Capitol Opera Company of Harrisburg and Amelia in Un ballo in maschera with the Burgas Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus, Bulgaria. In concert, she performed arias from Un ballo in maschera and Adriana Lecouvreur with pianist Michael Fennelley in a beautful salon setting at New York City's Steinway Hall.
Ms. Geary is scheduled to sing Sieglinde in a new production concept of Wagner’s Die Walküre being developed by Kevin Hanek. The production is being considered for its premiere at the 2009 FAOT Internacional music festival in Sonora, Mexico. Read more about this project ...
