I met soprano Kiera Duffy for lunch yesterday at Six Feet Under to talk about her career and current role in The Atlanta Opera’s production of Cosi fan tutte. You can find the interview in an upcoming issue of Classical Singer.
Duffy was featured in the Susan Froemke documentary The Audition, a film which revealed the behind-the-scenes experiences of 12 finalists at the the 2007 Metropolitan Opera Council Auditions.
Duffy is a lyric coloratura soprano who has the technique and musicianship to pull off challenging new music. One such example – a performance of Unsuk Chin’s ‘Cantatrix Sopranica” with the Los Angeles Philharmonic given immediately before her arrival in Atlanta.
