Dana Beth Miller
Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as "the evening's biggest find," and praised by both the New York Times for "wielding a rich, substantial voice, along with a winning stage presence," and the Boston Globe for having a "voice full of alluringly dark colorings," Dana Beth Miller is rapidly establishing herself as one of the most promising and exciting dramatic mezzo-sopranos on the stage today. She has been engaged by the leading opera houses around the world including the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Deutsche Oper Berlin, San Francisco Opera, Washington National Opera, Grand Théâtre Genève, New York City Opera, Seattle Opera, Dallas Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, and Cincinnati Opera, among many others.
During the 2018-2019 season, Ms. Miller made her debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra as La Badessa in Suor Angelica under the baton of Andris Nelsons. She then joined the Metropolitan Opera for their acclaimed Ring Cycle production to cover the role of Grimgerde in Die Walküre, returned to Boston Lyric Opera as Offred’s Mother in The Handmaid’s Tale, and brought her Grimgerde in Die Walküre to the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The 2019-2020 season and beyond includes performances as Donna Rosa in Il postino with Virginia Opera, Eunice in A Streetcar Named Desire with Opera Roanoke, and her debut with Opera Santa Barbara.
