Biography

Juliet Schlefer is a Brooklyn-based lyric soprano currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in vocal performance at the University of Michigan School of Music Theater and Dance, class of 2022. This coming summer of 2021, she is thrilled to return to Opera Neo to perform the role of Barbarina and to cover Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro. Also this summer, Juliet had the huge joy of being a participant of the Collaborative Piano Institute and studying with such musicians as Martin Katz, Kathleen Kelly, Amy Petrongelli, Paul Groves, and more. This past spring, she has had the pleasure to perform on multiple recitals, work on new music, and participate as one of ten finalists in the Opera Grand Rapids Collegiate Competition. Throughout the year, Juliet has also appeared as the First Spirit in Opera Neo’s fully filmed, edited, and green-screened production of Die Zauberflöte. In spring of 2020, Juliet was chosen as a featured soloist to perform on David Lang’s UM Penny Stamps Distinguished Lecturer Series about his newest opera “prisoner of the state”. She also returned to the UMich contemporary directions ensemble to perform more of David Lang’s works. In the operatic vein, she was cast as Adele in the University of Michigan’s spring production of Die Fledermaus, directed by Grant Preisser and she worked as an assistant director this past fall for Matthew Ozawa’s UM’ production of La Bohème. When not at school, Juliet can be found in Brooklyn, decompressing with cat Chestnut.
…Juliet Schlefer gave a poignant, vocally assured interpretation of Emily’s Aria from Ned Rorem’s 2005 Our Town.
