New York based soprano Rachel Duval has made a name for herself as an unconventional classical performer. A former trapeze artist and internationally acclaimed performance poet, Ms. Duval performed on Spanish National Television singing Puccini, German local television as the featured poet at the German National Slam, and was honored to be part of the world premier of the hip-hopera Stomping Grounds at The Glimmerglass Festival in 2017. Rachel sings both lyric soprano and baroque mezzo soprano roles, including: Damon in Acis and Galatea (Westchester Baroque Festival), Rosalba in Florencia en el Amazonas (Opera Steamboat), Angelica in Händel’s Orlando (Cantanti Project), and Sarah in Kamala Snkaram’s virtual reality opera The Parksville Murders (Opera On Tap). Last spring, Rachel made her off-Broadway debut singing Queen Vashti in The Queen’s Dilemma at the prestigious Center for Jewish History. Ms. Duval also works as an Executive Speaker Coach and voice teacher, and is a full time mother of two.
