Catherine Martin

Performance Year: 2015

Mezzo-soprano Catherine Martin has been praised for her “gorgeous warm voice” by The Washington Post as she makes an impact in repertoire ranging from Verdi and Wagner to Mozart and Donizetti. She recently reprised her role of Amneris with Opera Santa Barbara in which the LA Times said, “Martin’s Amneris took on enough depth of feeling to ultimately make her the standout of the performance.” Her 2013––14 includes returns to Houston Grand Opera as Wellgunde in Das Rheingold and the Glimmerglass Festival as the Composer in Ariadne auf Naxos, and debuts at the Kennedy Center with Washington National Opera as Mary in the premiere of The Lion, the Unicorn and Me. She also will debut with the Dresden Staatskapelle in a future season.
