OPERA America

Susan Graham (Mezzo-soprano)


Susan Graham made her international debut at Covent Garden in 1994, and has been loved by audiences across the globe ever since. A native of Texas, the mezzo specialises in French chanson and was awarded the French government prestigious ‘Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur’. But Susan Graham has also given her voice to contemporary music - Jake Heggie wrote ‘Dead Man Walking’ for her. She’s won a Grammy Award.

In conversation with Marc Scorca, President of Opera America, she shares stories from her extensive career, from being a professional ‘auditionist’ in the late ‘80s to winning a few competitions and landing title roles.
