Join us on Friday, December 10, 2021, from 2:00 - 4:00 pm at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for a free public masterclass with Kathleen Kelly, internationally renowned pianist, conductor, educator & writer. Fort Worth Opera’s talented Lesley Resident Artists will each present an aria and receive live feedback about their performance in the museum’s intimate, state-of-the-art auditorium.
The first woman and first American named as Director of Musical Studies at the Vienna State Opera, Kathleen’s operatic experience is the backbone of her career. Trained at the San Francisco Opera, she joined the company’s music staff and moved from there to a long association with The Metropolitan Opera. She was head of music at Houston Grand Opera, and music director of the Berkshire Opera before moving to Vienna.
Kathleen’s recital career includes appearances at Weill Hall, Zankel Hall, the Kennedy Center, DC Vocal Arts, Wigmore Hall, Spivey Hall, Vienna’s Musikverein, the Mahlersaal of the Vienna State Opera, the Neue Galerie, the Schwabacher Series in San Francisco, Cincinnati Song Initiative, and the Tucson Desert Song Festival. She has collaborated with some of the biggest opera stars of our time, including Jamie Barton, Christine George, Joyce DiDonato, and Karen Slack.
A published poet and essayist, Kathleen has created several new opera translations and libretti. She is the co-librettist of Interstate, a chamber opera by Kamala Sankaram, and will soon conduct the world premiere of Matt Boehler’s opera FAT PIG, starring activist soprano Tracy Cox.
