Vocalist - Soprano
About

Kelly Kaduce is a soprano with a warm and rich voice, stunning beauty, and superb acting ability. For her creation of the title role in Anna Karenina, Opera News proclaimed her "an exceptional actress whose performance was as finely modulated dramatically as it was musically... and her dark, focused sound was lusty and lyrical one moment, tender and floating the next." For her Boston Lyric Opera debut in the title role of Thaïs, Opera News observed, "Kaduce sings with bell-like purity and silvery sweetness, and she suspends her legato with an effortless, sensual spin. A born actress, Kaduce is also a masterful illuminator of text."

"Nedda (Kelly Kaduce) is delightful from the start, oozing charm and personality. Later, in several arias, her voice is extremely moving, especially impressive in the upper register, as she conveys vulnerability, desire, fear and desperation. Physically Kaduce is also a marvel, whether deftly offering physical comedy, or poetically entwining herself with lover Silvio in several scenes, where the choreography shone, even when the bodies were barely moving, as limbs and torsos were interlocked so beautifully as to become almost sculptural."
