Hailed for her “clean coloratura and silvery voice”, Kathryn Henry is quickly making a name for herself as one of the most promising young sopranos to watch. She graciously moves audiences with her “flawless sense of line” and “shimmering warmth of sound” that “combines dignity and strength with profound sorrow.”
The 2021-2022 season is already brimming with exciting performances. This summer she had the distinct honor of joining the Santa Fe Opera, where she performed the role of Lucy Harker in the world premiere of John Corigliano’s The Lord of Cries and covered the role of Helena in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Following her success as Micaëla in La tragédie de Carmen, Kathryn makes her highly anticipated return to the Florentine Opera Company as the title role in Viardot’s Cendrillon.
In her studies as a Toulmin Foundation Scholar at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City, Kathryn was seen on the mainstage as Arminda in La Finta Giardiniera and covered the title role in Janáček’s Katya Kabanova. She had the honor of celebrating the 80th birthdays of William Bolcom and John Corigliano as part of the New York Festival of Song at Juilliard, alongside legendary pianist Steven Blier.
