Chelsea Feltman

Chelsea Feltman (Chorus), soprano, was recently praised by the New York Classical Review for “…singing beautifully and inhabiting the sweetness of sincerity of the role” of Monica in Menotti’s The Medium, calling her performance “magnetic.” She has studied and performed at Tanglewood, Académie International d’Eté in Nice, La Lingua Della Lirica in Novafeltria, Italy, as Gretel in San Jose, Costa Rica, and as Gilda in a scenes concert at the Härnösand Opera Academy in Sweden. Chelsea is an alumna of The Juilliard School, where she completed her undergraduate studies, and Mannes College of Music, where she received her master’s degree and was a member of the Mannes Opera Program for two years. Her performances credits include the roles of Tytania in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Second Woman in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas (both with the Juilliard Opera Workshop), Zerlina in Don Giovanni, and Lucia in The Rape of Lucretia under the baton of Joseph Colaneri (both with Mannes College). An avid performer of new music, she has sung the works of Del Tredici with Mo. Lowell Liebermann and the Mannes American Composers Ensemble, and performed the New York premiere of Melissa Dunphy’s Tesla’s Pigeon with The Secret Opera. Equally at home in oratorio, Ms. Feltman recently appeared as the soprano soloist in Handel’s Messiah with the Metro Chamber Orchestra. This July she teams up with The Secret Opera again, as Frasquita in Carmen.
