Karin Wolverton


Soprano Karin Wolverton has been described by Opera News as “a young soprano to watch” having “a lovely warm tone, easy agility and winning musicality.” She took on the challenging role of Anna Sørensen in the world premiere of Kevin Puts’ Pulitzer Prize winning opera Silent Night with Minnesota Opera for which WQXR hailed “Karin Wolverton, whose diamond-edged soprano shone in a sublime Act I “Dona Nobis Pacem” during mass, and sliced through the top notes of a second-act aria full of emotional turbulence.” The 2018-2019 season saw the reprise of her Anna Sørensen in Silent Night with Minnesota Opera, Tatyana in Eugene Onegin with Opera Santa Barbara, the Foreign Princess in Rusalka with Madison Opera, and Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte in her debut with Mill City Summer Opera. This season, she returns to Minnesota Opera as the Overseer in Elektra.


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. Other recent engagements include a return to Minnesota Opera as Freia in Das Rheingold, the Jacksonville Symphony as the Mother in Hansel and Gretel, debuting with Opera Santa Barbara as Magda in La rondine, and a return to Angels & Demons Entertainment as Donna Anna in Don Giovanni ,and the Minnesota Orchestra to cover the title role in Salome.
