In 2010, Kate Aldrich ’96 performed the title role in Carmen at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City and the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Hailed by the San Francisco Sentinel as “the Carmen of this generation,” Aldrich, a performance major at IC, is slated to reprise her role as the beautiful gypsy in Bizet’s opera this spring at Deutsche Oper Berlin, this fall at the San Francisco Opera, and next winter at Opernhaus Zurich.
Since her professional debut in 2000 at Italy’s Arena di Verona in the role of Preziosilla in La Forza del Destino, Aldrich has performed in leading theaters throughout the world, including the Salzburg Festival, the Bavarian Staatsoper Munich, Teatro Colon de Buenos Aires, the Washington National Opera, and the Teatro Sao Carlos in Lisbon. Winning the Vidda Award in 2006 landed her a recital at Carnegie Hall with the Opera Orchestra of New York.
