Known for her soaring voice and richly nuanced characters, soprano Carrie Hennessey is consistently thrilling audiences and critics in opera and concert appearances around the world. Ms. Hennessey’s much awaited debut in Previn’s A Streetcar Named Desire “gave us a Blanche that let us burrow into her character’s soul, even into the darkest crevices…Hennessey, using a one-two punch of music and drama, made it resonate in a way that equaled the finest stage performances of the part I’ve seen.” Upcoming performances include Cio-Cio San in Madama Butterfly, Mozart’s Exsultate, Jubilate! and Requiem, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, chamber works including Respighi’s Il Tramonto, Ravel’s Trois Poèmes de Stéphane Mallarmé and William Walton’s Façade, several appearances in recital singing Strauss’ Vier Letzte Lieder and Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 as well as giving Master Classes. Recent engagements include her debut with the Houston Symphony, NYC debut in Poulenc’s French melodrama La Voix Humane as well as European appearances at Reduta Hall in Bratislava, Rudolfinum Hall in Prague, the International Mahler Festival in Jihlava, Czech Republic, Concertgebouw in Bruges, Ypres, Belgium and at the Liederhalle in Stuttgart, Germany.
