Praised for her “dramatic soprano” and “beautiful voice” (Del Mar Times), American soprano Michelle Anne Law has been delivering performances of "extreme vulnerability" that are "consistently excellent" (San Diego Reader) and "powerful and floating in all the right places" (North West End UK).
Ms. Law's previously performed roles include Mimì in La bohème, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro, Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte, the title role in Die lustige Witwe (The Merry Widow), and Gertrud in Hänsel und Gretel. Partial roles include Elsa in Lohengrin, the title role in Tosca, Tatiana in Eugene Onegin, and Ellen in Peter Grimes.
Ms. Law completed her postgraduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music's world-renowned School of Vocal Studies and Opera in Manchester, England. She was heard at the RNCM performing the role of Soeur Mathilde in Poulenc's Dialogues des Carmélites, Mimì in selections from La bohème with the RNCM Orchesta, and singing in masterclasses with renowned Wagnerian specialists Susan Bullock and Adrianne Piecznoka. Ms. Law is also an alumna of the San Diego Opera's Apprentice Artists program.
"A truly moving performance... Her Ave Maria from Verdi’s Otello was performed with a stillness that showed the extreme vulnerability of the character and her voice was powerful and floating in all the right places."
