British-American soprano Kathryn Frady has been widely praised for her vocal range and dramatic talent. Kathryn continues to create dynamic and vivid characters, thrilling audiences with her artistry, powerful stage presence, and vibrant vocal range throughout the United States and Europe.
Arts Knoxville said of Kathryn’s most recent performance of Poulenc’s The Human Voice, “soprano Kathryn Frady drew the audience deeply in as voyeurs into her psychological dilemma in The Human Voice. Frady’s brilliance as a soprano capable of riveting the audience’s attention—in vocal depth, in lyrical beauty, and in a marvelously conceived ebb and flow of posture and attitude-was as rewarding as it gets in theater.” TN Today called the same performance “nothing short of a tour de force.”
Kathryn’s performance of La Traviata with Marble City Opera was named the most memorable operatic performance of 2017 in Knoxville, Tennessee by Arts Knoxville, the review said, “retaining the silky subtlety and delicacy to contrast with the requisite power the role demands. Her performance was dramatically personal and intensely musically satisfying.”
Kathryn’s performance of Amelia in the World Premier of Larry Delinger’s opera Amelia Lost, was named “Most Memorable Operatic Performance in Knoxville, TN of 2014.” Arts Knoxville called the performance “a sensational theatre experience.” In 2013, Kathryn made her Opera Carolina main stage debut as Papagena in Jun Kaneko’s production of The Magic Flute, where the critics said, “her voice found no quality wanting.”
