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
and critics alike throughout the United States and Europe. Recent credits include roles with The
Mediterranean Opera Festival, New Orleans Opera, Opera Carolina, Knoxville Opera, Cleveland
Opera Theatre, Marble City Opera, The Pierre Cardin Theatre in Paris, and National Opera
Center in New York City. Upcoming performances include Tosca with the Helena Symphony;
Alice Ford in Falstaff with Diversita Opera Company in Dallas; Amelia Lost with Opera in the
City Festival, London, England; and the title role in Suor Angelica with Marble City Opera.
Kathryn’s performance of La Traviata with Marble City Opera was named "Most Memorable
Operatic Performance of 2017 by Arts Knoxville, which noted that Kathryn's voice possessed
"the silky subtlety and delicacy to contrast with the requisite power the role demands. Her
performance was dramatically personal and intensely musically satisfying.” Of her most recent
performance of Poulenc’s The Human Voice, Arts Knoxville noted “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.”
A passionate advocate and prolific performer of modern operatic repertoire, Frady has been
honored to perform two leading roles in World Premier productions of Griffen Candey's operas.
Frady performed the role of Kate in Griffen Candey's Sweets By Kate and Jo in Candey's Follow
Suit. Kathryn’s performance of Amelia in the World Premier of Larry Delinger’s opera Amelia
Lost, was named “Most Memorable Operatic Performance of 2014.” Arts Knoxville called the
performance “a sensational theatre experience.” Kathryn has also reprised the role in Cleveland,
New York, and London. The composer has since dedicated the opera to Frady.
