Hailed by Opera News as “blossoming in real time” with “her creamily sung Rosalinde” and in Brooklyn Discovery for her “Truly bravura performance! Generous and ample soprano and strong coloratura”, soprano Haley Sicking has thrilled audiences with her versatile performances in opera, concert, recital, musical theatre, jazz, and early and contemporary music.
Haley’s recent performances in New York City with Martina Arroyo’s “Prelude To Performance” of Rosalinde in Strauss’ die Fledermaus, received great praise. “As Rosalinde, Haley Sicking is nothing short of a star: a tireless, secure soprano that managed to be both voluminous and flexible. (Parterre box) Voce di meche also wrote: “If the role of Rosalinde could have been better portrayed by anyone but stunning soprano Haley Sicking, we have yet to imagine it. Her comedic skills are prodigious and her lusty soprano shone in the Czardas.”
Haley returns to Dallas to prepare for her season with the Dallas Opera. Haley will be making her Carnegie Hall debut in June as a soloist in Rutter’s Requiem and Glasgow’s Requiem. Haley has performed leading opera roles such as: Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus (German and English), Pamina in Die Zauberflöte; Juliette in Roméo et Juliette; Fanny in La Cambiale di Matrimonio; and Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
A native of Dallas, Tx, Miss Sicking holds a Master’s in Music from The Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and a Bachelors in Music from the University of North Texas, where she was awarded the Winspear Opera Fellowship and the McKinley award.
