Elyse Anne Kakacek is an award-winning soprano said to be “a stand out performer”(OperaNews) with a “sparkling soprano voice” (ChicagoHerald). She has performed over 30 operatic roles, some favorites including Norina in Don Pasquale, Gretel in Hansel und Gretel, Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro and Pamina in Die Zauberflote. An advocate of new works, Ms. Kakacek premiered 6 Flash Operas with Experiments in Opera last year, working closely with composers and librettists (from THE NEW YORKER and Saturday Night Live). She has sung in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, Preston Bradley Hall, La Mama Experimental Theatre, and Cornelia Street Café. In May, she will rejoin Experiments in Opera to premiere Matthew Welch’s new opera And Here we Are at National Sawdust. She is a proud recipient of The Lynne Harvey Foundation Scholarship from the Musician's Club of Women. Please “like” her on Facebook for schedules and updates!
