Anna Christy

— Soprano

"Anna Christy is born to play Baby Doe. Diminutive and appealing, blessed with a limpid, silvery soprano, the role seems to have been tailored to her significant gifts. While she can certainly easily encompass the spunk and grit of the determined heroine, where Ms. Christy uniquely excels is in the incredible legato flights above the staff. I have often marveled at Anna Christy’s achievements in the past, but with this role assumption she is at the height of her powers, an utterly perfect marriage of artist and material."
James Sohre, Opera Today, July 19, 2016 - 'The Ballad of Baby Doe' at Central City Opera

"Anna Christy sang one of the most secure Gilda's I have ever heard and brought real artistry into the Coliseum: her cadenza for Caro nome and at the end of the Act I duet were both a pleasure to experience."
Michael Migliore, Musical Criticism, February 21, 2014 - Gilda in 'Rigoletto' at the English National Opera

"Christy’s Lucia (Alden built the entire production around her) is subtle, clear, immensely powerful, but never overbearing. Her coloratura voice is so perfectly controlled that we stopped listening for its pyrotechnics, and just concentrated on its drama and artistry. The famous Mad Scene has been more flashily spectacular, but seldom more convincing."
Robert Harris, Globe and Mail, April 2013 - 'Lucia di Lammermoor' at the Canadian Opera Company

"The perky, gleaming soprano Anna Christy was charming as Lisette, Magda’s maid."
Anthony Tommasini, New York Times, January 13, 2013 - Lisette in 'La Rondine' at the Metropolitan Opera


Praised by the New York Times as “nimble of voice, body and spirit,” soprano Anna Christy continues to impress and delight audiences with an extraordinary blend of sparkling voice, powerful stage presence, and innate musicality.

Anna Christy returns to the Canadian Opera Company as Gilda in Rigoletto and will make her Florida Grand Opera debut as the title role in Lucia di Lammermoor in the 2017 – 2018 season. She will also return to Japan for performances of L’enfant et les sortilèges with Seiji Ozawa. Ms. Christy recently returned . . .
