Mezzo-soprano Annie Rosen's performances have been acclaimed as “fearless,” “intensely present,” and “soul-crushingly vulnerable.” Last season she made her role and company debut as Adalgisa in Norma with Utah Opera, sang her first Suzuki in Madama Butterfly with Central City Opera, and debuted with Chicago Opera Theater in Iolanta and The Scarlet Ibis. The 2019-2020 season includes her debut live and in HD with The Metropolitan Opera as Ankhesenpaaten in Akhnaten, appearing with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, a reprise of her Adalgisa in Norma in her Calgary Opera debut, and a return to the Lyric Opera of Chicago as Wellgunde in her first complete Ring cycle.  

An aficionado of new and experimental work, Ms. Rosen joined the Lyric Opera of Kansas City's Explorations series in 2019 to present a fully staged version of Sarah Kirkland Snider's one-woman song cycle Penelope. Previous fringe work has included a collaboration with L.A.-based director Annie Saunders and the International Contemporary Ensemble to co-create The Wreck, a site-specific devised opera based on the poetry of Anne Sexton and the compositions of Mariana Sadovska; a fully staged interpretation of Gyorgy Kurtag's Kafka Fragments for solo voice and solo violin in New York City, which Opera News hailed as “a flat-out triumph for its two fearless performers"; and a collaboration with the Hong Kong Ballet in Kurt Weill's Die Sieben Todsünden

"Annie Rosen has been superb in virtually every local appearance she has made on the opera stage or in concert since her time as a Ryan Opera Center young artist. It was high time this greatly gifted mezzo-soprano was given a leading part, and Rosen is absolutely sensa...


"Soprano Jamie-Rose Guarrine was at her best in the slower, more lyrical solos, in which her pearly tone could be heard most clearly. She resisted the common urge to over-dramatize “I know that my Redeemer liveth,” instead showing how effective this aria is when sung s...
