Indian-American soprano Francesca Mehrotra has been hailed as “a talented and warm actor and singer” with “clear, deft and nimble tone (Glens Falls Chronicle).” She made her professional debut as Gretel in Hansel and Gretel with Fort Worth Opera’s Children’s Opera Theatre and performed the role of Zelda ’18 in The Ghosts of Gatsby with Opera Birmingham at the Opera America New Works Forum. As an Emerging Artist at Seagle Festival, she performed the roles of Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro and Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare in Egitto. Additional roles include Norina (Don Pasquale), Nannetta (Falstaff), Tytania in (A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Suor Genovieffa in (Suor Angelica), and Lucinda in (Dark Sisters). This season, Francesca appeared as Mukhtar Mai in a virtual production of Kamala Sankaram’s Thumbprint with the Boston Conservatory and as Atalanta in Handel’s Serse at Opera NEO. Upcoming engagements include a workshop of newly commissioned works with Boston Opera Collaborative and premiering two new works with White Snake Projects.
"Francesca Mehrotra, another dazzling soprano, provided great satisfaction with her take on Atalanta, the knavish character whose manipulations keep the plot humming. I particularly enjoyed her aria in which she described how she cleverly employs her beauty to control men."
