  • Soprano


Laura Claycomb got her start at San Francisco Opera where she was the youngest ever to hold an Adler fellowship, singing roles such as Xenia in Boris Godonov, Papagena in Die Zauberflöte , Duchesse Medina-Sidonia in Milhaud's Christoph Colombe, Marie in La fille du régiment and Fiakermilli in Arabella . Her role-debut of Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos (Cox/Märkl) was the vehicle of her triumphant return to San Francisco Opera in 2002. She reprised the role at the Richard-Strauss-Festspiele in Garmisch with Ulf Schirmer and at Los Angeles Opera. Following her European debut in Geneva, she sang Marie at Turin's Teatro Regio in Luca Ronconi's production and again as Ismene in Graham Vick's production of Mitridate, re di Ponto .

She followed with Princess Rezia in Haydn's L'Incontro Improvviso for L'Opera de Nice and L'Opera de Bordeaux, and Serpetta in Mozart's La finta giardiniera at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. with Patrick Summers conducting. After Ms. Claycomb's debut at La Scala in the title role of Linda di Chamounix , she sang Marie in Rome and her first Sophie in Keith Warner's production of Der Rosenkavalier at the Spoleto Festival in Italy. Other appearances include her role-debut at L'Opera de Lausanne as Adina in L'Elisir d'amore and as Konstanze in Die Entführung aus dem Serail with Vlaamse Opera, a role she reprised at the Berlin Staatsoper.
