PORTLAND OPERA STUDIO ARTISTS RECITAL

Soprano

LINDSAY OHSE
 


 

Tuesday, January 31, 7:00pm | Whitsell Auditorium, Portland Art Museum

 

Enjoy an unforgettable evening of Mozart, Poulenc and Rachmaninov when the spotlight shines on soprano LINDSAY OHSE in her first Portland Opera Studio Artists Recital.  These Studio Artists recitals are the perfect opportunity to get to know the voices of our talented young artists in an intimate setting where the audience experiences the close relationship between composer, singer and accompanist.  Portland Opera Associate Music Director ROBERT AINSLEY will accompany Ms. Ohse.
 

Described as “sparkling” by Opera News, Lindsay Ohse has already won the hearts of Portland audiences as Barabina in the Company’s recent The Marriage of Figaro and as featured artist in the first ever Big Night gala concert. This season she will sing the role of Maria Celeste in Portland Opera’s new production of Philip Glass’ Galileo Galilei, as well as Maria in Wichita Grand Opera’s La Fille du Regiment and Constance in Dialogues of the Carmelites with Des Moines Metro Opera.
 

Lindsay has also performed with the Sarasota Opera, where she “delivered the Queen of the Night's arias with panache" according to the Wall Street Journal. She is an alumnus of Santa Fe Opera’s young artist program, where she was rewarded for her work with the 2010 Agnes M. Canning Award.
