Hailing from a small town in Southern Illinois, Angela Dinkelman is an up and coming talent in the New York City area. At her recent performance of the title role in The Ballad of Baby Doe with Utopia Opera her “shimmering soprano” was noted by such publications as Opera News. She will return to the company in spring of 2019 as Margie in the New York premiere of Laura Kaminsky’s Some Light Emerges.
Angela has performed with several of New York's finest opera companies such as Bronx Opera, where she covered Alexandra in Marc Blitzstein's Regina, and the young, but noteworthy Utopia Opera as La Fee in Cendrillon, Najade in Ariadne auf Naxos and The Second Woman in Dido and Aeneas.
Along with her great love of opera, Angela also enjoys programming and performing recitals that speak to audiences of all levels of Classical music knowledge. She most notably performed at NYC's Cafe Vivaldi, retelling the story of Breakfast at Tiffany's using only Schubert Lieder. She recently completed a tour of “Echoes of the Fifth Gospel: A Bach Cantata and Hymn-Sing,” a program designed to interweave Bach’s exquisite solo arias and keyboard solos with well-known and beloved hymns in a recital/sing-along style.
Angela has also had the great pleasure of singing her Carnegie Hall Debut as both 2nd Spirit and 2nd Lady in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte as well as Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro with Manhattan Opera Studio. She performed Pamina in Die Zauberflöte with dell'Arte Opera Ensemble, and Madame Silberklang in Der Schauspiel Direktor with New York Lyric Opera and has premiered several roles and works including the Voodoo Queen in A Night of Pity by Robert Cuckson, and Insomnia by Tom Cipullo at SongFest. She was a finalist in the Fritz and Lavinia Jensen foundation and a recipient of SongFest's Stern's Fellowship.
