Frederica von Stade Biography (Wikipedia)

Frederica "Flicka" von Stade Gorman (born June 1, 1945) is a semi-retired American opera singer. Since her debut in New York in 1970, she has performed in operas, musicals, concerts and recitals in venues throughout the world, including the Met, La Scala, the Paris Opera, the Vienna State Opera, the Salzburger Festspielhaus, Covent Garden, Glyndebourne and Carnegie Hall. Conductors with whom she has worked include Abbado, Bernstein, Boulez, Giulini, Karajan, Ozawa, Solti and Tilson Thomas. She has also been a prolific and eclectic recording artist, and has made many appearances on television.

A mezzo-soprano equally at home in lyric music and in coloratura, von Stade has assumed fifty-four operatic roles on stage and eight more in concert or on disc. She is especially associated with the Mozart, Rossini and French repertoires and with contemporary American music, particularly the works of Jake Heggie. Among her signature roles are Penelope, Rosina, Angelina, Charlotte, Lucette, Mélisande, Hanna Glawari and Mrs de Rocher, and, in trousers, Cherubino, Hänsel, Chérubin and Octavian.
