Praised by Opera News for “impeccable pitch and phrasing,” and for “gleaming high notes and powerful phrasing” (San Diego Story), soprano Sarah Tucker is demanding attention for her captivating vocal timbre and engaging stage presence.
Ms. Tucker’s recent debut with San Diego Opera as Micaëla in Carmen was described as “heart-rending and soulful,” (Pacific San Diego) and Opera West praised her as “one of the loveliest soprano voices I’ve heard in years.” Also recently, Ms. Tucker debuted the role of Donna Anna in Don Giovanni with Pensacola Opera; sang the role of Mimì in La Bohème with Gulfshore Opera; performed the role of Tatiana in Intermountain Opera’s Eugene Onegin, made debuts at Dallas Opera as Frasquita in Carmen, and at the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy in Japan as Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi. With the Santa Fe Opera, Ms. Tucker sang the role of Echo in Ariadne auf Naxos as a returning apprentice artist.
Other notable appearances include Jano in Jenüfa with the San Francisco Opera, the role of First Memory in Lembit Beecher’s War Stories: I Have No Stories To Tell You at Philadelphia Opera, and Micaëla in Carmen at Utah Opera. As a Studio Artist with Arizona Opera, Ms. Tucker sang the roles of Micaëla in Carmen, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Rosalba in Florencia en el Amazonas, and Nelly in Arizona Lady.
Ms. Tucker returns to San Diego Opera in 2022 as Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte. Other performances this season include debuts as Adina in L’elisir d’amore with Dayton Opera and Opera Maine; Freia in Das Reingold with Virginia Opera; and Pamina in The Magic Flute with North Carolina Opera.
