Rachel Deatherage is a captivating performer with a rich, warm timbre all her own. Lauded for her "dark" and "powerful" voice (Art de Vivre) with its “sparkling coloratura” (The Stage) she brings personality and authenticity to the stage, delivering her repertoire with "an immensely engaging personality. Equipped with a mezzo-soprano that is ideal for bel canto singing." (Oper in Österreich)

This summer she will make her company debut with Quisisana resort in Maine, reprising the role of Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus in addition to performing in their concerts for the season.

This October was her first production with Barn Opera and she was thrilled to bring one of her favorite roles (Angelina/La Cenerentola) to life in Vermont under the baton of Cailin Marcel Manson.

Ms Deatherage made her European debut singing the role of Cenerentola (Angelina) for the first time in Schloss Kirchstetten’s 2022 production of La Cenerentola where she "triumphed with a velvety sound" (Die Press). She then immediately reprised the role with her UK debut in Barefoot Opera’s 2022 touring production.

Ms. Deatherage’s 2023-2024 season also included performances of Valentin in Verismo Opera’s Faust (stepping in for an ill colleague), and both Judith, in "The Limit of the Sun", and Violin 2 in "The Morpheus Quartet" in West Edge Opera's "Snapshot." She then returned to the UK to conclude her tour as Angelina (Cinderella) with Barefoot Opera and wrapped up her season with spring performances of Charlotte in The New York Opera Forum’s Werther.

Also during the season she starred in the concert series "For the Love of Music" in the California Bay Area, performed in the New York Composer Circle's Concert, and appeared in Barn Opera and Opera Vermont’s “Night at the Opera” concert series.

Currently based in Brooklyn, when not singing Ms. Deatherage can generally be found sipping tea and reading about everything from neuroscience to dinosaurs. Further information on Ms. Deatherage's performances and behind the scenes happenings can be found on Instagram @Deatherageconfidential.
