Hailed by the Financial Times for her “easy flexibility, arresting poise, and enveloping warmth,” mezzo-soprano Cecelia Hall sings leading roles as a member of Oper Frankfurt’s prestigious ensemble and appears regularly as a guest artist on many of the world’s finest stages.

Highlights of Hall’s 2023–24 season include the title role in a new production of La Cenerentola for Boston Lyric Opera; Mozart’s Requiem in a series of concerts at New York’s Lincoln Center with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Jaap van Zweden; and the title role in a new production of Mozart’s Ascanio in Alba at Oper Frankfurt.

During the 2022–23 season, Hall sang the title role in Xerxes for the Komische Oper Berlin; performed Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at New York’s Carnegie Hall with the Orchestra of St. Lukes’s conducted by Harry Bicket with narration by David Hyde Pierce; and sang the title role in Ariodante for the Israeli Opera conducted by Jean Christophe Spinosi.

Hall will lead a discussion of her journey, navigating a successful performance career and living in Europe as an opera singer.

This event is open to Berklee students, faculty, and staff with a valid Berklee ID, and invited guests only. 

Cecelia Hall is presented as part of Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s Opera Innovators Series in partnership with the Boston Lyric Opera.
