An alumna of the Lyric Opera of Chicago’s young artist program, Ms. Kuznetsova went on to star in a number of new productions at the theater, including Cunning Little Vixen, Rigoletto and, marking her role debut as Tatyana, Eugene Onegin under the baton of Sir Andrew Davis, opposite Dmitry Hvorostovsky. Since that debut, she has built a name as an outstanding interpreter of Tchaikovsky’s leading lady, attracting acclaim from her many subsequent productions. Other highlights have included Desdemona (Otello) with the Gulbenkian Orchestra under Lawrence Foster, Alice Ford at Glyndebourne under Vladimir Jurowski (available on DVD), and Cio–Cio San in Anthony Minghella’s production of Madama Butterfly at English National Opera under Gianluca Marcianò and, in original version, at Atlanta Opera and Cleveland Opera Theater. Ms. Kuznetsova reprises her portrayal of Cio-Cio San at Pittsburgh Opera this fall.
