Vocalist - Soprano
About

Praised by Opera News as “the kind of performer who makes it all look easy,” Heather Buck is best described by opera critic David Shengold as “a lithe and impactful actress with an uncommonly beautiful soprano for the high-lying and testing repertory she serves." Among her engagements in the 2019-20 season are Leïla in Les pêcheurs de perles with Opera in Williamsburg, and Herodias in Stradella’s San Giovanni Battista with Opera Omaha.
