Soprano Chelsea Miller is the darling of [Opera Memphis], a nationally acclaimed company based in her hometown of Memphis,TN. She has sung over eight leading roles with the company and was heard last season as Elvira in L'italiana in Algeri and as Doralice Rosetti in Scarlatti's Il trionfo dell'onore.
This summer, Chelsea will be making her debut with [Ohio Light Opera] as Cundegonde, the comically unlucky leading lady in Leonard Bernstein's masterpiece, Candide. Following her work in Ohio, Chelsea will be traveling north to perform Josephine in [Anchorage Opera's] production of H.M.S. Pinafore.
In 2017, Chelsea sang with [Des Moines Metro Opera] as Mrs. Nordstrom in A Little Night Music, where critics remarked that "you will likely never hear a finer sung rendition of this score." In summer 2016, she joined the prestigious [Chataqua Opera] starring as Yum-Yum in Ned Canty's acclaimed, off-the-wall production of The Mikado. At Opera Memphis, Chelsea has taken on the roles of Gretel, Thérèse/Tirésias (Les mamelles de Tirésias), Queen of the Night, Mabel, Ruth (Musto's Later the Same Evening), and Madame Silberklang over the last several years.
Ms. Miller was a 2014 regional finalist of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. She holds a master's degree from Louisiana State University and an artist diploma from The University of Memphis.
