Sarah Fleiss


American soprano Sarah Fleiss is in her fourth year at the Curtis Institute of Music. In the 2022/23 season, she sings Ginevra in Handel’s Ariodante with the Tempesta di Mare Orchestra and the Curtis Opera Theater. She recently went on a North American tour with Eric Owens and sang the world premiere of Tania Léon’s In the Fields. A lover of song, she also performed in a recital with Warren Jones and looks forward to singing the Pergolesi Stabat Mater. Past seasons include Despina in Così fan tutte, Monica in The Medium, Annio in La Clemenza di Tito, and Pamina in Die Zauberflöte. Prior to Curtis, she attended Columbia University and participated in the Juilliard-Exchange program where she narrated Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du soldat and performed around New York in musical theatre and cabaret-style performances. Sarah has received awards from the George London and Gerda Lissner Foundations, and is generously supported by the Jack Wolgin Fellowship and the Shirley Winston Rabb Scholarship.
