Martha Eason

Soprano Martha Eason recently made her company debut on tour with the Komische Oper Berlin in November 2017, when she sang Papagena at the Opéra-Comique Paris in Barrie Kosky's and 1927's brilliant and much-traveled staging of Mozart’s "Magic Flute". She returns to the Komische Oper Berlin in April 2018, where she appears as Berta in "Il barbiere di Siviglia". For the 2018-19 season, she is engaged to sing Blonde in Mozart's "Die Entführung aus dem Serail" at the Theater Münster in performances from May through July 2019.

Martha has been based in Europe since 2017 and made her role debut as Zerbinetta in Richard Strauss' "Ariadne auf Naxos" with the Berlin Opera Group in April 2017. She covered the role of Ophelia in the world premiere of Brett Dean's "Hamlet" at Glyndebourne, both in the summer 2017 festival and the fall touring production.

The young soprano studied voice at the renowned Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and graduated in 2015. She also starred in a number of productions at the Indiana University Opera Theater, where her leading roles included Rosina in Rossini's "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" (2015), Kitty in Menotti's "The Last Savage" (2015), and Sophie in Massenet's "Werther" (2013). She was a 2015 member of the young artists program at Opera North in New Hampshire, where performed the roles of Blonde in Mozart’s "Die Entführung aus dem Serail" and Beth in Copland’s "The Tender Land". She returned to Opera North in 2016, when she was cast in the leading role of Marie in Donizetti's "La fille du régiment".

Martha has competed in several singing competitions and was a finalist in the The Brava! James Collier Competition in San Francisco as well as a semi-finalist in the Washington International Competition in 2016.
