Hailey Clark

— Soprano

"As Fiordiligi, Hailey Clark triumphed in “Come scoglio” and “Per pietà,” displaying little trouble with the former's leaps and bounds, while acquiring a warm, floating soprano and effortless trills in the latter."
Marc Shulgold, Opera News, July 19, 2017 - Fiordiligi in 'Cosi fan tutte' at Central City Opera

"Clark imbued Fiordiligi with real emotions rather than the caricature of a prima donna. Most importantly she can rise to the role’s vocal challenges. She brought energy, fervor and dramatic passion to Fiordiligi’s “Come scoglio” and “Per pietà, ben mio.” Her strong low tones, fine projection and ease in coloratura passages propelled the ensembles as well as solo showpieces. Clark is a very promising soprano."
Lawrence Budmen, South Florida Classical Review, January 27, 2015 - Fiordiligi in 'Cosi fan tutte' at Florida Grand Opera

"In lovely feminine contrast was the bejeweled priestess Leïla, sung by soprano Hailey Clark. Clark’s voice is focused and delightfully flexible. She closed Act I with a magnificent cadenza at the end of “O Dieu Brahma.”
The Column (Dallas), April 19, 2014 - Leïla in 'Les pêcheurs des perles' at Fort Worth Opera

"Soprano Hailey Clark, as Leïla, possesses a fluid, flexible voice; suitable for a role that looks fondly back at the florid bel canto era of the early 19th century."
Wayne Lee Gay, D Magazine, April 20, 2014 - Leïla in 'Les pêcheurs des perles' at Fort Worth Opera
