Opera, operetta, musical theater; mezzo-soprano Edith Grossman does it all. This past summer she created the role of Rachel in the world premiere of Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer’s If I Were You with the Merola Opera Program. In Merola’s Grand Finale, she shined as Hélène in an excerpt from La belle Hélène at the San Francisco War Memorial Opera House.
Her opera experiences include Falstaff (Meg) with Crested Butte Music Festival, La Cenerentola (Tisbe) with Merola Opera Company, Le Nozze di Figaro (Cover: Marcellina) with Opera Saratoga, Suor Angelica (The Abbess/Monitor) and the world premiere performance of In a Mirror, Darkly (Elaine) both with the Crane Opera Ensemble. With an expertise in the annals of classical musical theatre, her roles have ranged from Eliza Doolittle to Julie Jordan. Edith is equally adept at contemporary material, including Cats (Grizabella) and most recently, Ordinary Days (Claire).
Edith is a graduate of the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam with a B.M. in Vocal Performance.
