Kristin Gornstein

Praised as “a fine actress with a deep, spacious sound” [Parterre], American mezzo-soprano Kristin Gornstein brings her “rich-voiced mezzo-soprano” and “lines of an uncannily silky legato” [New York Times] to her work, ranging from the traditional to the edgy and imaginative. She was lauded for her recent portrayal of Piramo in Johan Hasse’s baroque gem Piramo e Tisbe with The Little Opera Theatre of New York, with Opera News calling her performance, “...masterful. She sang the difficult role with a truly flawless lyric mezzo”. In 2019 she debuted the role of Julie in Pulitzer Prize-nominated composer Alex Weiser’s opera State of the Jews. Kristin was lauded for her portrayal of Ramiro in Mozart’s La finta giardiniera in a co-production by On Site Opera and Atlanta Opera, a role she reprised in 2018 at Caramoor. She performed in the ensemble of the groundbreaking opera Acquanetta, both in the 2018 world premiere at the Prototype Festival, and at the Bard Summerscape Festival in 2019.Recent seasons have also included several role debuts: Angelina in Rossini’s La cenerentola with Salt Marsh Opera, Lady-in-Waiting in Verdi’s Macbeth with Opera Company of Middlebury, and Paul in the world premiere Vonnegut/Clark’s Happy Birthday, Wanda June with Indianapolis Opera. In 2018, Kristin had her Carnegie Hall debut, winning third place in the Lyndon Woodside Oratorio-Solo Competition. She is a frequent soloist with Concerts at St. Ignatius in NYC and the Brooklyn Art Song Society, and has performed with many small ensembles, including Seraphic Fire and Musica Sacra.
