About This Performance

Winner of the George London-Leonie Rysanek Award and a 2018 alumna of the Metropolitan Opera’s prestigious Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, Michelle Bradley garnered great acclaim in concert and recital debuts last season with the Orchestre de Paris and at the Kennedy Center. Of her DC recital the Washington Post proclaimed Bradley “an impressive soprano (and) exceptional talent… with surprising power on the lower end and high notes extending from finely spun to fierce.”
