Brittany Fowler

Noted for her lyrical pathos and comedic flair, mezzo-soprano Brittany Fowler has been praised by the New York Times for her “dynamically fluid characterization.” Recent engagements include Despina (The Three Little Pigs) with Prelude Opera, Larina (Eugene Onegin) with Utopia Opera and Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with the Elysium String Ensemble. As a former Young Artist with the Boston Early Music Festival, she covered Melanto in Monteverdi’s Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria and sang in the 1988 concert revival, Three, Four, and Twenty Lutes. Her operatic roles include Ottavia (L’incoronazione di Poppea), Meg (Little Women), The Mother (Amahl and the Night Visitors), and La Musica (L’Orfeo). She sings frequently with New York Continuo Collective, performing works by Strozzi, Saracini, Caccini, and du Bailly in concert. Brittany received her BA in Music and Italian Studies from Wesleyan University; her training includes two seasons as a Young Artist with Opera North as well as studies at the University of Bologna in Italy.
