Soprano Flora Hawk has been hailed as “vocal standout” by Opera News and lauded for her “richly balanced” voice by Opera Wire. Engagements for 2021-22 include debuts as Peter in Houston Grand Opera’s The Snowy Day, Amelia in Quamino’s Map with Chicago Opera Theater, and Poppea in Agrippina with Florida Grand Opera as well as a return to Kentucky Opera as Euridice in Orfeo.
This season, she completed her residency with Kentucky Opera's Barbara and Halsey Sandford Studio Artist Program where she was originally scheduled to perform Musetta in La bohème, Sandman in Hänsel and Gretel, and Euridice in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice, but due to Covid-19 she instead appeared in multiple innovative productions with the company. Additionally, she performed Josephine in H.M.S Pinafore with Pensacola Opera, Sally in the premiere of Stone Soup with Fort Worth Opera, and leading role of Sara in the premiere of We Wear the Sea Like a Coat with Opera Ithaca. She was a returning artist with Shreveport Opera for the 2019-2020 season where she sang Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro and Antonia in Man of La Mancha. She was engaged as a returning artist with Opera Saratoga for their 2020 summer season where she would have performed Winnie in Sky on Swings and Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance but due to Covid-19 these productions will be scheduled for a later date.
