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."
Mezzo-soprano Catherine Cook will sing the title role in the new Tobias Picker opera with San Francisco Opera.
“In this opera’s secondary roles, veteran mezzo-soprano Catherine Cook was a superb Marcellina.”
