Emily Kate Naydeck

 Soprano Emily Kate Naydeck is continually gaining recognition in both traditional and contemporary opera. Recently she performed a season with the Long Island Opera as Gabrielle in the operetta La Vie Parisienne, and Musetta in La Bohème, where her “passionate yet hilarious Musetta generated a sensual fire” (27East News). Her 2017 season also included an American premiere as Kate in Griffin Candey’s Sweets by Kate with OperaRox Productions, Nannetta/Falstaff and Anne Page/Sir John in Love with Bronx Opera, and performances of Handel’s Messiah with Apple Tree Arts, MA. Some favorite past roles include Zerlina/Don Giovanni, Ilia/Idomeneo, Pamina/Die Zauberflöte, and Young Miss Havisham/Miss Havisham’s Fire. Emily Kate recently won the Saltworks Opera Competition in Virginia, where she will return in 2019 to perform Gretel/Hansel & Gretel. Emily Kate will also debut Gretel with Long Island Opera later this year. Other performances this season include Elvira in the world premiere of Ross Crean’s The Times are Nightfall, as well as multiple concerts and recitals in art song and musical theater in and around her New York home base. Emily Kate holds a M.M. degree from the Maryland Opera Studio, and a B.M. degree from Ithaca College.  www.emilykatenaydeck.com
