Soprano | Chamber Music

Soprano Geraldine McMillian has received acclaim for her highly dramatic and vocally accomplished performances in some of opera’s most challenging roles. She made her debut with the New York City Opera, as Mimi, in La Bohème in 1990, and returned there in 1994 as Cio-Cio San inMadama Butterfly. Ms. McMillian’s close affiliation with this company began with it’s National Touring Company, singing Tosca, The Countess in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, Mimi and Cio-Cio San, a role she subsequently performed with Minnesota Opera and El Paso Opera. Her diverse repertoire includes the role of Monisha in Treemonisha, with Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Madame Lidione in Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites, in which she made an impressive debut with Central City Opera in July 2000, and Aïda, which has become something of a signature role. She has sung the Ethiopian princess to great acclaim with Nashville Opera, Memphis Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, Minnesota Opera and Opera Omaha.
