Meredith Hansen Headshot

Soprano Meredith Hansen, hailed a “standout” by Ted Medrek of the Boston Herald for her performance of Antonia in Les Contes d'Hoffmann, has scored many successes, both domestically and internationally. For her performance of Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle with Masterworks Chorale, the Boston Globe offered the following praise: “Soprano Meredith Hansen sang the surprisingly sweet ‘Crucifixus’ with a creamy tone and soared in the ‘O salutaris hostia.’”Opera magazine (UK) deemed her “a real find”, and Opera News stated, “As Marzelline, the jailer’s daughter in love with Fidelio, soprano Meredith Hansen was a bright, clever presence, and the size and color of her voice matched the role perfectly. She succeeded where very few singers do, making perfect dramatic sense of a romantic comedy figure essentially stranded in this otherwise dark and serious work.”

Pleased to return to the Metropolitan Opera Roster in spring 2017 for the acclaimed Francesca Zambello production of Cyrano de Bergerac, the 2017-18 season sees Ms. Hansen in a series of engagements that highlights new repertoire as well as seasoned favorites. Performing Mimi, Norma and Luisa Miller in a concert of arias with Boston Bel Canto Opera, she also joined the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra as Frasquita in Carmen. She performs as the Soprano Soloist in the Verdi Requiem in a return engagement with Landmarks Orchestra at the iconic Boston Hatch Memorial Shell in August 2018.

Meredith Hansen’s 2015-16 season included singing as the Trainbearer in Strauss’ Elektra in a return engagement with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Boston Symphony Hall and also Carnegie Hall as well as stepping in last minute as Donna Anna in Don Giovanni with Opera in Williamsburg. She also appeared as a featured soloist at Asheville Lyric Opera's annual Gala and in a concert of Mozart Arias and Scenes (Konstanze, Fiordiligi, Contessa) with the Opera Theatre of Connecticut at the Sanibel Music Festival.
