Cecelia Hall

Cecelia Hall

Vocalists — Mezzo-Soprano

"Cecelia Hall is a real find for the Composer, her enameled mezzo strong and admirably deployed. " —Scott Cantrell, Dallas Morning News, May 5, 2013

"Cecelia Hall, a member of Lyric Opera's Ryan Center, offered a stunning rendering of the title character, graced by prodigious technical assurance across the mezzo range and an unexaggerated, convincingly masculine characterization. The evening's musical zenith was the duet "Cara/caro, ti dono in pegno il cor," which found Hall coruscating down the scale with absolute precision and blending beautifully with the warrior's inamorata, the princess Agilea (Italian soprano Manuela Bisceglie)." —Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News, June 2012

“But Agilea's heart is pledged to Teseo, a trouser role taken here by the gleaming-voiced mezzo-soprano Cecelia Hall, a rising star of Lyric's Ryan Opera Center, who sounds headed for an important career.” "As her lover, Teseo (a part originally written for a castrato singer), Hall has the vocal beauty as well as the technique to spin the ornate vocal lines as if they are child's play. She has no trouble mustering the heroic postures Handel requires, musically as well as histrionically." —John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, Teseo, April 2012


Hailed by the New York Times as a “rich-voiced mezzo-soprano,” Cecelia Hall is one of an exciting new crop of versatile American singers, poised on the threshold of an international career.

Ms. Hall’s 2013-14 season includes debuts as Dorabella in Così Fan Tutte with North Carolina Opera and Zerlina in Don Giovanni with Opera Philadelphia, a Spotlight Recital with The Song Continues at Carnegie Hall, as well as a return to Lyric Opera of Chicago to sing Annio in La Clemenza di Tito.
