Soprano Karin Wolverton has been described by Opera News as having “a lovely warm tone, easy agility and winning musicality.” She originated the challenging role of Anna Sørensen in the world premiere of Kevin Puts’ Pulitzer Prize winning opera Silent Night with Minnesota Opera and reprised the role to much critical acclaim; "she outdoes herself seven years later, soaring on a romantic duet” (Pioneer Press) and "was impressive as the dignified and fiercely protective Anna. Her warm tone and precision was just right in the a capella "Dona nobis pacem" that ends Act I” (Opera News). This season’s engagements include Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni with Opera San Antonio.
Continuing her passionate involvement in new works, Ms. Wolverton recently returned to Arizona Opera for the world premiere of Bolmer’s Riders of the Purple Sage. Of her Foreign Princess in Rusalka with Madison Opera, Opera News wrote: "Karin Wolverton delivered a terrific Foreign Princess with a big, refulgent soprano voice that dominated proceedings with her every utterance.” Other recent engagements include Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte in her debut with Mill City Summer Opera, Freia in Das Rheingold with Minnesota Opera, the Mother in Hansel and Gretel with the Jacksonville Symphony, Tatyana in Eugene Onegin and Magda in La rondine with Opera Santa Barbara, and a return to Angels & Demons Entertainment as Donna Anna in Don Giovanni and the Minnesota Orchestra to cover the title role in Salome.
