About

American soprano Kiera Duffy is recognized for both her gleaming high soprano and insightful musicianship in repertoire that ranges from Handel, Bach, and Mozart to the modern sounds of Berg, Glass, and Carter. This season she debuts with the Bergen Philharmonic in Mozart’s Mass in C minor with Nathalie Stutzmann conducting, after singing the same work with Jacksonville Symphony. She sings the role of Euridice in Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice as part of Anthony Roth Costanzo's "Orphic Moments" production at the National Sawdust in Brooklyn. Following her debut with Houston Symphony in Fauré's Requiem in May, she will debut at the Mostly Mozart Festival in Netia Jones' "Illuminated Heart: Selections from Mozart's Operas." She has performed with the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, London Symphony, St. Louis Symphony, Atlanta Symphony, and the National Symphony, in addition to the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Opera Philadelphia, and Opera Theatre of St. Louis. Her performances of modern and contemporary music are highly regarded, as are her interpretations of the Baroque repertoire. Her growing discography includes Richard Strauss: The Complete Songs, Volume 5 with pianist Roger Vignoles (Hyperion), Carmina Burana with the Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk Orchestra (Sony), and Mahler's Eighth Symphony with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel (Deutsche Grammophon). She is featured in the documentary The Audition (Decca), which chronicles her experience as a Grand Finalist in the 2007 Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition.
