Praised by Opera News for her “richly focused voice”, young mezzo-soprano Rebecca Ringle Kamarei's performances have brought her acclaim on operatic and concert stages. Her New York City Opera debut as Lola in Cavalleria Rusticana was hailed as “sultry” and “sweetly sung” by The Wall Street Journal and London’s Financial Times. She returned to NYCO as Suzuki in Madama Butterfly, Dorothée in Cendrillon and to cover Rosmira in Partenope. Engagements for 2018-2019 included Marnie’s shadow in Marnie, the cover of Rossweisse in Die Walküre with the Metropolitan Opera, and Lucienne in Die tote Stadt with the Bard Summerscape. The 2019-2020 season sees her return to the Metropolitan Opera for productions of Akhnaten, Manon, and La Cenerentola as well as Berlioz’s Les nuits d’été with the Missoula Symphony.
Most recently, Rebecca appeared as Catherine in Shining Brow with UrbanArias, Arnalta in L’incoronazione di Poppea with Cincinnati Opera, Maddalena in Rigoletto with Baltimore Concert Opera, sang Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with Rogue Valley Symphony, the Phoenix Symphony and Brevard Symphony, Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 with the Cheyenne Symphony, Verdi’s Requiem with the Midcoast Symphony Orchestra, Handel’s Messiah with Augustana College, the Omaha and Jacksonville Symphonies, and Rhode Island Philharmonic, Elijah with the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park, Mozart’s Mass in C minor with the New West Symphony, and returned to the Metropolitan Opera for productions of Alfano’s Cyrano de Bergerac, The Death of Klinghoffer, Manon, Shostakovich’s The Nose, and Elektra.
