Sara Jakubiak

Vocalists — Soprano

“Sara Jakubiak plays and sings the role of Marta with the almost surreal aura of the shimmering beautiful undead. She delivers a lyrical human portrayal in the extended camp scenes where she comforts her female inmates and for her lover Tadeusz as “Madonna of the Barracks…” —Hans-Klaus Jung Heinreich, Frankfurter Rundschau, March 2, 2015 - Marta in 'The Passenger' at Oper Frankfurt

“Sara Jakubiak is a touching, vocally beautiful Elsa, who is just as impressive in her pure, angelic innocence as in the fatalistic undertow of her questioning and eventual existential despair.” —Harold Haslmayr, Die Presse, October 3, 2013 - Elsa in 'Lohengrin' at Oper Graz

“If the most powerful moments come from ENO’s superlative orchestra, it is not for want of interest on stage, especially when Sara Jakubiak’s Marie is singing. This luscious-voiced American, new to these shores, is an exciting performer, with a radiant upper register and good diction – she must be invited back.” —Andrew Clark, Financial Times, May 13, 2013 - Marie in 'Wozzeck' at the English National Opera


American soprano Sara Jakubiak has been praised by the New York Times for her "plush-voiced, impressive soprano" and by Opera News as a “talented, highly musical singer.”

With her career rapidly expanding in North America and now Europe, Sara Jakubiak begins as a member of the ensemble at Oper Frankfurt in the 2014 – 2015 season. She will be seen as Alice Ford in Falstaff, Prima Donna/Ariadne in Ariadne auf Naxos, The Goose Girl in Humperdinck’s Königskinder, and a new production of Die Passagierin as Marta. . . .
