Originally from Virginia, Kate is a graduate of Indiana University, and was a student of the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program at the Metropolitan Opera. Since entering the program, Kate has performed over 80 times at the Met.

This performance marks Kate’s WNO debut.

Acclaimed performances include Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Cherubino in The Marriage of Figaro, Wellgunde in The Ring, and Hansel in Hansel and Gretel.

A notable moment: In 2012, Kate was featured in Vogue magazine alongside fellow opera singers Susanna Phillips and Isabel Leonard. In the feature, they discuss what it means to be an opera singer in the modern world.

Like her Dead Man Walking co-star Susan Graham (who originated the role of Sister Helen), Kate is well known for portraying trouser roles like Cherubino, Hansel, and in her interpretation of the Italian opera The Clemency of Titus. Watch a performance of the latter below!


“Her voice is lean and amber-tinted, with the gracefully weighted phrasing of a true Mozart singer.” – Opera News
