Her opera credits include heroines of operas by Mozart (Fiordiligi/Cosi fan tutte, Donna Elvira/Don Giovanni, Madame Herz/Der Schauspieldirektor), Cavalli (La Calisto title role, Hypsipyle/Giasone), and numerous early and contemporary operas. She also has extensive experience in oratorio and concert music from all periods. She has performed with the Ash Lawn Opera, Gotham Chamber Opera, Alexandria Symphony, Ravinia Festival (where she was a 2009 Steans Fellow), Amherst Early Music Festival, Collegiate Chorale, Mark Morris Dance Group, New York City Ballet, Joy in Singing, and the New York Festival of Song in venues including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. She has co-founded two critically acclaimed chamber groups in New York: Callisto Ascending, a period-instrument ensemble, and Lunatics at Large, a contemporary chamber group lauded as "young, energetic and highly polished" by senior Times critic Allan Kozinn. She holds degrees from Harvard University, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and Mannes College of Music.
