Kristin Patterson is described by critics as a singer with “rich contralto singing”, “charismatic presence”, “brilliant portrayal” and a “startlingly rich mezzo”. Recent rave reviews were extended for her powerful Ulrica in Un Ballo In Maschera at Opera In the Heights. For her recent performance as Helen in Anne Dinsmore Phillips’ Table #9 (RTB’s Opera Shorts at Carnegie Hall), “Kristin Patterson’s powerful alto voice made the irony of the piece play out all the more achingly sweet.”
Other recent highlights include her debut as Florence Pike in Albert Herring, in Virginia and California with Maestro Lorin Maazel and the London Royal Academy of Music, and her roles as resident artist with the International Opera Center of America in Florida as Carmen, Alisa (Lucia) and Suzuki (Madama Butterfly). With Music LIVE Productions, she sang the Mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors, Suzuki in Madama Butterfly, Ruth in The Pirates of Penzance and Berta in The Barber of Seville.
