American mezzo-soprano Samantha Hankey is quickly making a name for herself at home in the US and abroad.
Highlights of recent seasons include her role and house debuts as Rosina Il Barbiere di Siviglia at Den Norske Opera and as Siébel Faust at the Grand Théâtre de Genèvthe, the title role in Handel’s Agrippina at The Juilliard School, and Varvara in Stephen Wadsworth’s production of Káťa Kabanová.
In the 2018/19 season, Samantha will make her Metropolitan Opera debut as Pantalis Mefistofele, and returns to the Met throughout the year in Adriana Lecouvreur, Carmen, Das Rheingold, Götterdämmerung, and Rigoletto. She will also make her company debut at Opernhaus Zürich as Cherubino Le nozze di Figaro. In addition to these debuts, Samantha will cover the title roles in Agrippina at the Bayerische Staatsoper and the premiere of Nico Muhly’s Marnie at the Metropolitan Opera.
