Hannah Carlson is an up and coming Boston-based soprano who frequents the operatic stage as much as she does the classical and contemporary concert scene. Hannah was most recently seen playing Musetta in La bohème with Opera Theater of Cape Cod and Sœur Mathilde as well as the cover for Blanche de la Force in Dialogues des Carmélites with Boston Conservatory Opera. Other notable stage appearances include the Old Blue Woman in Pinnochio with Boston Conservatory Opera, Deuxième Esprit in Massenet's Cendrillon with Promenade Opera Project, and Gretel in Hansel & Gretel, Belinda in Dido & Aeneas, Susanna in The Marriage of Figaro, Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi, Julie Jordan in Carousel, and Rose Maurrant in Street Scene, all with Opera Simpson.
Throughout her time at the Boston Conservatory and since graduation, Ms. Carlson has found herself more and more immersed in the contemporary and concert scene. She appeared as the Soprano 2 in Philip Glass's modern opera, Hydrogen Jukebox, and more recently has performed as the soprano soloist on contemporary pieces such as "William Blake Rhapsody" by Boston composer David Wallace and "Shell & Wing" as part of the Berklee Global Summit. Other concert performances includes the soloist in Mendelssohn's "Hear My Prayer" at the Boston Conservatory as well as her work as a Young Artist at the Ad Astra Music Festival in the summer of 2017. Ms. Carlson will next be seen as the soprano soloist on Michael Daugherty's "Labyrinth of Love" with the Boston Conservatory Wind Ensemble and on the Pergolesi "Stabat Mater" with Boston Opera Collaborative.
