KARA CORNELL

ROSINA, THE BARBER OF SEVILLE
ROSE LENNOX, THE SECRET GARDEN

Kara Cornell is a versatile performer who is known as "a singer who can balance impeccable production and phrasing with enthusiastic and colorful dramatics." (Berkshire Review for the Arts) Her intuitive acting skills and expressive portrayal of roles has hailed her "accomplished and electrifying" (Opera Insider) with roles ranging from a "totally endearing" Cinderella (St. Petersburg Times) to a "seductive, wounded, damaged and dangerous" Carmen (The Troy Record).

Classic operatic roles that Kara has recently performed include Carmen (Hubbard Hall Opera Theater NY, Opera Theater of Pittsburgh, Long Island Opera, St. Petersburg Opera FL and Opera at The Madison Theatre, NY), Orfeo in Orfeo ed Euridice (Opera Theater of Pittsburgh, Mosaic-Arts NY), Sesto in Giulio Cesare (Upstate Chamber Opera NY) and 3rd Lady in The Magic Flute (Opera Saratoga).  

Kara's clear English diction, soulful interpretations, and intuitive rhythmic skills are making her known as a singer who excels in the Contemporary and American music genre. Kara enjoys collaborating with composers and is premiering pieces in American Art Song themed recitals nationally in a tour called Creative Collaborations. Similarly, she is a frequent artist with The Center for Contemporary Opera in NYC. Contemporary roles performed include Dinah in Trouble in Tahiti (Union Avenue Opera MO, Resonance Works | Pittsburgh), Minskwoman in John Dove's Flight (Opera Fayetteville), Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady (Smithtown Center for the Performing Arts NY), Cinderella in Into the Woods (St. Petersburg Opera), Beth in Merrily We Roll Along (Theater Co. at Hubbard Hall) and Jo/Alma in Little Women (Center City Opera/Pittsburgh Opera). This season, Kara made her debut with Opera Ithaca in the one woman opera Songs from the Uproar by Missy Mazzoli. 

In addition to Kara’s stage and recital experience, Kara has performed the alto solos in many fully-orchestrated oratorios, including Handel’s Messiah, Judas Maccabaeus, Samson and Utrecht Te Deum, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Honegger’s King David and Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, St. John Passion, Corigliano's Fern Hill and Karl Jenkin's Stabat Mater. Kara has had the privilege to work most notably with The United States Naval Academy, The Pittsburgh Camerata, Aoede Music Consort, Williamstown Early Music, The Brooklyn Philharmonic, Burnt Hills Oratorio Society, Albany Pro Musica and The Falmouth Chorale. Kara can be heard on the recording of Nancy Galbraith’s oratorio Sacred Songs and Interludes and recently had the hilarious pleasure of performing with PDQ Bach with the Cape Cod Symphony’s New Years Pops concert. 

Kara is a New York native who currently lives in Pittsburgh, PA. You can learn more about her on her website: www.karacornell.com.
