Beth Clayton

  • Mezzo-Soprano


Beth Clayton: Renowned as a unique musician and stage performer, Beth Clayton has been praised for her outstanding performances with America’s leading opera companies and orchestras. The New York Times summed up these virtues in its review of her in the title role of Carmen at New York City Opera: “The mezzo-soprano Beth Clayton does not need to act to convey tremendous power. Six feet tall and sultry, with a mane of dark hair, she took the stage of the New York State Theater on Sunday afternoon as a Carmen prepared to eat the whole wimpy garrison of soldiers for breakfast… She is a fine, impressive Carmen, and she has the tools to become a truly great one.”
