Natalie Lewis



Wielding a “velvet mezzo-soprano sonic cushion” (San Diego Story) and “sly lyricism” (Opera News), Natalie Lewis is a captivating presence on the rise.

Ms. Lewis makes her European debut with the Bayerische Staatsoper and Deutsche Oper Berlin, as a winner of the Opera Foundation scholarship competition. In Berlin, she joins the cast of Il trittico: Il tabarro (La Frugola), Suor Angelica (La Zelatrice), and Gianni Schicchi (Zita). In Munich, she sings in Madama Butterfly (Kate Pinkerton), Pique Dame (Governess), Suor Angelica (2nd Alms Sister & 2nd Lay Sister), Parsifal (Blumenmädchen), Respighi’s Lucrezia (La voce), Elektra (Die Vertraute), and La fanciulla del West (Wowkle).

Of her 2023 debut with Merola Opera in the title role of The Rape of Lucretia, the San Francisco Classical Voice writes, “Natalie Lewis was a regal Lucretia, her tone rich and her technique seemingly effortless.” In the summer of 2022, Ms. Lewis debuted the role of Mistress Quickly in Falstaff with Bryan Terfel at the Aspen Music Festival, where she worked with Renée Fleming and Maestro Patrick Summers.

During her studies as a proud Kovner Fellow at The Juilliard School, where she received her Master of Music degree in Vocal Arts, Ms. Lewis performed in Suor Angelica (La Zia Principessa) and Gianni Schicchi (Zita); and she covered in Atalanta (Irene), Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor (Frau Reich), and The Rake’s Progress (Baba the Turk).

Ms. Lewis was a winner in the 2023 Metropolitan Opera Eric and Dominique Laffont Competition, the first place winner of the 2023 Houston Grand Opera Concert of Arias Competition, and awarded the Director’s Award in the James Toland Vocal Competition.
