The American mezzo-soprano Kate Aldrich began her professional career at the Arena di Verona, where in 2000 she made her début as Preziosilla in La forza del destino and in the following season sang Fenena in Nabucco. In 2001 Franco Zeffirelli chose her for Amneris in his production of Aida, presented in Busseto on the centenary of Verdi’s death and subsequently seen in Modena, Rome, Naples, Florence, Milan, Piacenza, and Ravenna. Since then Kate Aldrich has appeared in opera houses around the world, including with the Los Angeles Opera in the world première of Deborah Drattel’s Nicholas and Alexandra under Mstislav Rostropovich and as Idamante (Idomeneo).
