Praised for her "clear, bell-like tone," (OperaWire), soprano Julia Gmeiner maintains an active schedule of concert, opera, and musical theatre work. Recently she has performed at Symphony Space, made her role debut as Gilda in Rigoletto at the Mentor Civic Ampitheater (OH), and appeared as Frasquita in Opera Breve's "fascinating" psycho-thriller adaptation of Carmen. In 2016, she bought her keen comedic acting to a successful run as Miss Hedgehog in Tobias Picker’s Fantastic Mr. Fox with the Young Artist Program at Opera Steamboat. Previous favorite roles include Amy March in Little Women, Despina in Così fan tutte, Veronique in Pasatieri’s Hotel Casablanca, Susanna in Le nozze dì Figaro, and Rapunzel in Into the Woods.
Currently based in New York City, Ms. Gmeiner is a native of Maine and a graduate of the Master of Music program in Voice Performance from The University of Texas, Austin. She is also an alumna of the CAP21 Professional Training Program in Musical Theatre and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music with a minor in Drama from Tufts University, where she graduated summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa.
