The American soprano Christine Buras is a versatile artist, equally at home on the operatic and on the concert platform. Her repertoire ranges from early music, to opera and to contemporary performance art.
She received her BA in Music History and Theory from the University of Chicago, and subsequently undertook her vocal training at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and the Royal Academy of Music in London. She currently studies with American soprano Pamela Kuhn.
Opera roles include both Susanna and Contessa Almaviva (Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro / Kennet Opera, Fortismere Festival Orchestra), Cupid (Purcell’s King Arthur / Dartington International Festival), Suor Dolcina and La Prima Sorella Cercatrice (Puccini’s Suor Angelica / Royal Academy Opera), Hélène (Chabrier’s Une Éducation Manquée / Pop-Up Opera), Lucy (Menotti’sThe Telephone / Salon Opera), Theodora (Handel’s Theodora / Benslow Opera), and Belinda and Second Woman (Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas / Indiana University, Shipwright Opera).
