Daryl Freedman

Enjoy an unforgettable evening of vocal chamber music when the spotlight shines on mezzo soprano DARYL FREEDMAN in the first Portland Opera Studio Artists Recital of the 2009/10 season.  These Studio Artists Recitals have proven very popular, turning into standing-room-only events.  The intimate nature of the recitals allows the audience an opportunity to experience the close relationship between composer, singer and accompanist.

In her first season as a Studio Artist, mezzo soprano DARYL FREEDMAN comes to us from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Her opera credits include Juno in Semele, Thelma Yablonski in Later the Same Evening, Olga Olsen in Street Scene at Manhattan School of Music; Sorceress and Spirit in Dido and Aeneas at Central City Opera; Aloès and Zinnia in L’Étoile at Wolf Trap Opera; and she sang Nicklausse in The Tales of Hoffmann, Soeur Cadette in Les Malheurs d’Orphee and covered the role of Meg in Falstaff at Temple University.  Daryl graduated with a Masters of Music from the Manhattan School of Music.  She received a Bachelor of Music from Temple University and has been a member of the Central City Opera Studio, Wolf Trap Opera Studio, Académie Internationale d’Été de Nice and Opera Theatre Music Festival of Lucca.  This season she will sing Aglaonice in Orphée, Dinah in Trouble in Tahiti and Venere in Il ballo delle ingrate and cover the roles of Dorabella in Così fan Tutte and Rosina in The Barber of Seville.
