BRENNAN BLANKENSHIP (Ensemble) is an exciting and versatile performer quickly establishing herself in the opera world. Original plans for the American soprano’s ’20-’22 seasons included joining the young artist program with Michigan Opera Theater, which was unfortunately canceled due to COVID-19. In 2019, Ms. Blankenship starred in the lead role of Jake Heggie/Gene Scheer’s world premiere, IF I WERE YOU, at the Merola Opera Program. Recently, Miss Blankenship was a soloist in Opera Outdoors inaugural presentation of Rossini’s PETITE MESSE SOLLENELLE and will perform with Opera in the Heights in selections from LE NOZZE DI FIGARO and LUCIA. Musical Theater credits include Gloria/ THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE, Stepmother/INTO THE WOODS, SWEENY TODD and AIDA.
