In 2013-14, Susan headlines in role debuts at HGO, Met, and Châtelet; joins Boston Symphony at Carnegie Hall; hosts WQXR/NYPR Gala; and tours
Susan – winner of a Grammy, an Opera News Award, Musical America’s Vocalist of the Year, and hailed by the New York Times as “an artist to treasure” – returns for another compelling season, highlighted by three role debuts. As Houston Grand Opera’s 2013-14 Lynn Wyatt Great Artist, she undertakes Prince Orlofsky in the company’s first staging of Die Fledermaus in 30 years. Then, heading an all-star cast featuring Plácido Domingo and David Daniels at the Metropolitan Opera, she gives her first performances as Sycorax in Jeremy Sams’s surprise hit Baroque pastiche, The Enchanted Island. To conclude the season, she sings her first Anna in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s musical comedy The King and I at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. On the concert stage, Graham joins Bernard Haitink and the Boston Symphony for Ravel at Carnegie Hall and Symphony Hall, and pairs Schoenberg and Mahler on a European tour with Pablo Heras-Casado and the Ensemble InterContemporain. After launching the season alongside Deborah Voigt at a special Sing With Haiti benefit concert in San Francisco, Graham co-hosts the prestigious 2013 WQXR/New York Public Radio Gala, and embarks on a tour with pianist Bradley Moore that kicks off with her Kimmel Center recital debut in Philadelphia.
