Sarah Tucker as Micaëla in Utah Opera’s Carmen
“Sarah Tucker’s Micaëla also stood out. Her gleaming soprano, long blond braids and simple dress cried innocence amidst the morally ambiguous surroundings. Her passionate “Je dis que rein ne m’épouvante” showed impeccable pitch and phrasing.” —Robert Coleman, Opera News
Praised by Opera News for “impeccable pitch and phrasing,” and by Opera Today for “pure, clear tones,” soprano Sarah Tucker is demanding attention for her captivating vocal timbre and engaging stage presence.
This season Ms. Tucker made her Opera Philadelphia debut, where she reprised the role of First Memory in Lembit Beecher’s War Stories: I Have No Stories To Tell You, which she first premiered with Gotham Chamber Opera at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Earlier this spring, she made her international debut as Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi with the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy in Japan, and performed as the soprano soloist in Stravinsky’s Les Noces with the New York City Ballet in Lincoln Center. This summer she sings Echo in Ariadne auf Naxos with the Santa Fe Opera where she returns as an apprentice for a second year. This fall, Ms. Tucker will make her Dallas Opera debut as Frasquita in Carmen.
Last season, Sarah made her San Francisco Opera debut as Jano in Jenufa, and at Utah Opera as Micaëla in Carmen.
Ms. Tucker was a National Semifinalist in the 2014 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and a member of the Arizona Opera Studio. The 2015-16 season with Arizona Opera included several role debuts for Ms. Tucker as Micaëla in Carmen, Rosalba in Florencia en el Amazonas, and Zerlina in Don Giovanni.
