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.
