Kathryn Lewek joins CSAM for General Management

Centre Stage Artist Management is thrilled to announce that Kathryn Lewek has joined the roster for general management (with the exception of the USA and Canada).

American soprano Kathryn Lewek is a born communicator. Combining charismatic stage presence with a voice of sumptuous range, crystalline purity and rich emotional power, she headlines major productions at the foremost opera houses and festivals worldwide, from New York’s Metropolitan Opera to Austria’s Salzburg Festival. Triumphant in an increasing array of leading lyric and dramatic coloratura roles, including Mozart’s Queen of the Night, the signature role with which she has repeatedly broken records, Lewek also wins accolades for her orchestral collaborations and sensitive interpretations of contemporary art song. As the New York Times recognizes, “singing like Lewek’s is what the magic of opera is all about.”

Lewek continues to expand her range with new roles and repertoire this season. 2023-24 has already seen her make two title role debuts, first in Laurent Pelly’s season-opening new staging of Delibes’s Lakmé at Opéra de Nice, and then opposite her husband, tenor Zach Borichevsky, in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette at Ohio’s Toledo Opera. In the world premiere of Music for New Bodies, a new DaCamera ensemble co-commission from Matthew Aucoin and Peter Sellars, she creates the soprano role at Houston’s Rice University. She graces three presentations of Offenbach’s Les contes d’Hoffmann, singing Olympia at Dresden’s Semperoper and portraying all Four Heroines, both at Florida’s Palm Beach Opera and in a new production by Mariame Clément at Austria’s Salzburg Festival. To complete her operatic lineup, Lewek revisits Mozart’s Queen of the Night in staged productions of The Magic Flute at the Metropolitan Opera, Semperoper and with the Cleveland Orchestra. She also gave her first concert performance as Madame Herz/Tonina in excerpts from Mozart’s Der Schauspieldirektor and Salieri’s Prima la musica e poi le parole with the Vienna Philharmonic at Salzburg’s 2024 Mozart Week Festival, and, as in previous years, joined the Oratorio Society of New York for holiday performances of Handel’s Messiah at New York’s Carnegie Hall.
