Vocalist - Mezzo-Soprano
About

American mezzo-soprano Catherine Cook has excelled in a wide range of roles with leading companies throughout the United States. Opera Today wrote that “to say that Ms. Cook was a revelation is an understatement, since she stamped the part as her own, and experienced a triumph for her sensational performance.... Ms. Cook is possessed of a round mezzo tone of great beauty, admirable control and potent power in all ranges and at any volume."

"But the heroic star of the proceedings... was the magnificent mezzo-soprano Catherine Cook as Mrs. Peachum. Cook showed how to give Weill’s music its full due without sacrificing any of the script’s satiric bite, especially in an account of 'Ballad of Sexual Dependency' with a winning blend of swagger and tonal richness. Her comic pacing was impeccable... she delivered every line and every take with crisp exactitude. There’s nothing she can’t transform into pure delight."
