Hire Susan Nelson ›


Equally at home on the operatic stage or in concert repertoire, American lyric soprano Susan Nelson has been praised by critics for her “full, powerful voice – agile and pliant” as well as her interpretations, called both “sensitive and moving” and “full of life and vigor.” She showcases versatility and vocal beauty in repertoire from Bach and Mozart to verismo and contemporary opera, as well as light opera and popular music. Roles include four Mozart heroines (Countess Almaviva, Donna Elvira, Pamina and Fiordiligi), two Gilbert and Sullivan gals (Josephine and Yum Yum), as well as American opera favorites (Geraldine in "A Hand of Bridge" and Laetitia in "The Old Maid and the Thief").  She has appeared in concert in a wide variety of repertoire from Bach's major works and cantatas to Rossini masses and contemporary works of composers such as Errolyn Wallen and Jonathan Willcocks.
