Praised by Opera News for her “gleaming tone,” soprano Cree C. is an emerging singing actress quickly gaining recognition as an interpreter of 20th and 21st century works. In past seasons, Cree performed Lauretta in the prestigious Merola Opera Program’s production of Gianni Schicchi at San Fransisco Opera, the demanding title role in Douglas Moore’s The Ballad of Baby Doe, in her performance with Chautaqua Opera, and originated the roles of Rosemary Kennedy and Littler Zegner Daughter in the world premiers of JFK and Proving Up. A member of Actor’s Equity, Cree earned her union card as an ensemble member in the New York Philharmonic’s performance of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, and was seen in Carnegie Hall’s one-night-only performance of Guys & Dolls. Cree can also be heard on the cast recordings of David Lang’s chamber opera The Difficulty of Crossing a Field & Mazzoli and Vavrek’s Proving Up. When she’s not frolicking around singing and spreading love, Cree can be found discovering the world’s strangest roadside attractions, digging for mid century treasures, volunteering with children, working on her push-up, and soaking into oblivion in a hot bath of lush products.
