In the 2017-18 season soprano Jennifer Zetlan (Xenia) gives performances in the title role of Rhoda in John Musto’s Rhoda and the Fossil Hunt for On Site Opera at the Natural History Museum, reprises her role in Matthew Aucoin’s Crossing with American Repertory Theatre at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and plays Fanny in the New York premiere of Ricky Ian Gordon’s Morning Star. Last season, she made her European debut with the Stuttgart State Theater in Purcell’s The Fairy Queen, created the title role in the world premiere of Louis Karchin’s Jane Eyre with Center for Contemporary Opera, and concluded a run of Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway. On the concert stage, she performed Kaija Saariaho’s Lonh with the New York Philharmonic at the Park Avenue Armory and sang the role of Woglinde in that ensemble’s concert presentation of Das Rheingold. Ms. Zetlan sang the soprano solos in Bruckner’s Te Deum and Mozart’s Mass in C minor with Oratorio Society of New York at Carnegie Hall and on tour in Uruguay, and was heard at Carnegie Hall as a celebrated alumna of Mannes College of Music in its Centennial Celebration concert. She was also heard in recital with pianist David Shimoni and composer Ricky Ian Gordon, and was seen in Charlottesville Opera’s new production of Oklahoma! as Laurey. These performances mark her San Francisco Symphony debut.
