Cyndia Sieden  


Coloratura soprano Cyndia Sieden makes regular appearances at the world’s great opera houses and concert stages, where she moves with ease from roles by 18th-century composers to the complexities of 20th- and 21st-century repertoire. She made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in Berg’s Lulu, wowed critics in Thomas Adès’ The Tempest at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, and introduced his Scenes from The Tempest to the orchestral world. She has garnered acclaim as Queen of the Night in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte and Blondchen in Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail, which she has sung at opera houses around Europe as well as in Beijing and Australia. She debuted at the Salzburg Festival in a staged production of Mozart concert arias, and returned to sing Aspasia in Jonathan Miller’s Mitridate re di Ponto. She frequently appears with leading orchestras, including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam; the Los Angeles Philharmonic; the Cleveland and London Symphony orchestras; the Atlanta, Chicago and St. Louis Symphonies; and at New York’s Mostly Mozart Festival. Miss Sieden is also an active recitalist.
