Heralded for her rich, satiny voice and impeccable characterizations, mezzo-soprano Cindy Sadler is a force to be reckoned with on the operatic scene. The 2014-15 season includes her reprise of The Italian Lesson and Dinah in Trouble in Tahiti with Opera Piccola San Antonio, the Marquise in La fille du Regiment with Mill City Opera, and return engagements to Syracuse Opera as Prince Orlovksy in Die Fledermaus, New Orleans Opera as Marcellina in Le nozze di Figaro, and Austin Opera as Gertrude in Romeo and Juliette. In the 2013-14 season, Ms. Sadler was lauded for her comedic charm in Chautauqua’s Peter Grimes, her scene-stealing turn as Marthe in Austin Opera’s Faust, and for her ability to make an impression as Marie in The Most Happy Fella with Tulsa Opera. She also made company debuts with Portland Opera as Ruth in Pirates of Penzance, the Jacksonville Symphony as Marcellina in The Marriage of Figaro, and Pine Mountain Music Festival as Mrs. Clancy in Hoiby’s one-woman opera The Italian Lesson. Other highlights include the Old Baroness in Sarasota Opera’s Vanessa, her debut at Florida Grand Opera as Gertrude in Romeo and Juliette, Zita in Gianni Schicchi and Baba the Turk in The Rake’s Progress at the Princeton Festival, and Katisha in Syracuse Opera’s The Mikado. An accomplished concert artist, Ms. Sadler counts among her repertoire Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, Verdi’s Requiem, Mozart’s Coronation Mass, Elgar’s Sea Pictures, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, Bruckner’s Mass in F Minor, and the Duruflé and Mozart Requiems.
