Vocalist - Soprano

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."

"Our lead, Polly Peachum (Kelly Kaduce), or as she insists, the wife of Macheath, is played by Kaduce with overt playfulness. Her nasally, affronted, childish voice is so amusing that when Kaduce does open her mouth to sing for Macheath’s criminal friends, the audience is left captivated at the contrast."
