It was at Baldwin-Wallace College in Ohio that Margaret Chalker sang her first rôle as the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro, followed by a career that took her to many concert halls and opera houses in the United States. Her career in Europe began in 1985 at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf. In 1987 she made her début at the Zurich Opera as Jemmy in Rossini’s Guillaume Tell. Since then she has appeared in more than 20 rôles in over 400 performances of works by Mozart, Puccini, Strauss, Wagner, Menotti and others. In 1991/92 she sang Fiordiligi and Donna Anna, and in 1995 sang her first Donna Elvira. She appeared as a guest artist at the state theatres in Meiningen, Leipzig, Zurich, Dresden and Prague, with her début in 1998 at the Hanover State Theatre. In contemporary music she has sung Dallapiccola’s Concerto per la note di Natale dell’anno 1956 with Zurich Opera and Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire with the Opera Nova Ensemble.
