Karin Mushegain - Mezzo-Soprano

Karin Mushegain  -  Mezzo-Soprano

Karin Mushegain, called “superb” (The New York Times), and singled out for possessing “a rich voice and infectious theatricality” (Colorado Gazette), is captivating audiences with her exciting, energetic portrayals, dramatic poise, and dynamic vocal sound. In repertoire that spans from Rossini to Handel to Philip Glass, she has graced the stages of Seattle Opera, New York City Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, Virginia Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, Long Beach Opera and Austin Lyric Opera, to name a few. Her signature role as the title character in Rossini’s La Cenerentola has taken her throughout the US, to the Philippines, and to France, where she has also performed Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia and Dorabella in Così fan tutte. Other noted roles include Zerlina in Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Cherubino in Le nozze di Figaro, of which The Washington Post said, she “managed the trouser role as convincingly and as delightfully as any I can recall, with high energy, and exquisite comedic timing.”  Off the opera stage, Ms. Mushegain can be heard on multiple soundtracks for the massively popular video game series, Heroes of Might and Magic. This season, Ms. Mushegain makes multiple role and oratorio debuts, including Suzuki in Madame Butterfly, the mezzo soloist in Bernstein’s Jeremiah Symphony No.1, and the Mozart Requiem.  She also returns to Pensacola Opera as Aldonza in the Man of La Mancha, Opera San Jose for the US premiere of Alma Deutscher’s Cinderella, and Charlottesville Opera for her role debut as Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro.
