Hailed for her “resonant mezzo-soprano” and “bright and full” voice, California native Karin Mushegain is making her mark as one of the most versatile singers of her generation.
Since making her company debut with Pittsburgh Opera as Dryade in Ariadne auf Naxos, Ms. Mushegain has also performed the roles of Amastre in Handel’s Xerxes, Sicle in Cavalli’s Ormindo, Second Lady in Die Zauberflote, Stephano in the student matinee of Romeo et Juliette, and the Minskwoman in the company premiere of Jonathan Dove’s Flight.
This fall, Ms. Mushegain will make her Los Angeles Opera debut, under the baton of Maestro James Conlon, as the Novice in Suor Angelica. Other recent debuts include Kate in the Pirates of Penzance and La Ciesca in Gianni Schicchi and Buoso’s Ghost, both with Lake George Opera.
Ms. Mushegain joined Florida Grand Opera this season for Flora in La traviata and Tisbe in La Cenerentola.
