OPUS 3 ARTISTS SINGERS TO APPEAR IN METROPOLITAN OPERA'S 2007/2008 SEASON LIVE HD MOVIE THEATER TRANSMISSIONS

Soprano Patricia Racette has appeared in the most acclaimed opera houses of the world including the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Canadian Opera Company, Royal Opera House, La Scala, Paris Opera, Theater an der Wien, Teatro Liceu, and the Bayerische Staatsoper. Established as a great interpreter of Janácek and Puccini, she has gained particular acclaim for her portrayals of the title roles of Madama Butterfly, Tosca, Jenufa, Kátya Kabanová, and all three lead soprano roles in Il Trittico. Her repertory now expands to include triumphant portrayals of Strauss's Salome, Minnie in La Fancuilla del West, Katerina in Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, and Elle in La voix humaine.  She has been a favorite on The Met: Live in HD series as both leading lady in Madama Butterfly, Tosca, and Peter Grimes as well as the celebrated host for multiple other productions.

A champion of new works, Ms. Racette has created roles in a number of world premieres, including Leslie Crosbie in Paul Moravec's The Letter at The Santa Fe Opera, Roberta Alden in Tobias Picker's An American Tragedy at the Metropolitan Opera, the title role in Tobias Picker's Emmeline at the Santa Fe Opera (broadcast on PBS/Albany Records audio), Love Simpson in Carlisle Floyd's Cold Sassy Tree at the Houston Grand Opera, and most recently, the title role in Tobias Picker's Dolores Claiborne at the San Francisco Opera.

Upcoming projects include her role debut as Magda in Menotti's The Consul, a role and house debut in Weill's Street Scene for Madrid's Teatro Real, and a return to Barcelona's Teatro Liceu for Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk. She also makes her directorial debut with a new production of La Traviata at the Opera Theater of St. Louis in the summer of 2018.

Born and raised in New Hampshire, Ms. Racette studied jazz and music education at North Texas State University. Among her recognitions are an Opera News Award, the prestigious Richard Tucker Award, and the Marian Anderson Award.
