Deemed "a vocal revelation" (Houston Chronicle) and lauded for her "sparkling stage presence” (St. Louis Dispatch), soprano Katy Lindhart has delighted audiences across the United States in repertoire ranging from Verdi to Sondheim.
Katy makes a role and house debut in 2023 as Maguelonne in Pauline Viardot's rarely-performed Cendrillon for Resonance Works. Her 2023 season began with a foray into cabaret with Songs that Speak, which she will reprise in early 2024.
In 2022, Katy made her role and house debut with Opera Omaha as the Beggar Woman in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. She returned to Opera in the Heights for her exciting role debut as Tatiana in Eugene Onegin, where her letter scene was described as "radiantly sung, a full Russian banquet of girlish delight, indecision, and resolute desire." She joined New Amsterdam Opera as the title role in Boïeldieu's rarity, La Dame Blanche. Katy was to sing Alice Ford in Falstaff with Raylynmor Opera, unfortunately canceled due to Covid-19. She also debuted with the Erie Philharmonic for Handel's Messiah.
In 2021, Katy sang Alice Ford in Falstaff for Opera Vermont, returned to Little Opera Theater of New York for Zemlinsky’s Zimmer, and covered Elena in I vespri Siciliani for New Amsterdam Opera.
