Cast Bio: Bridgette Gan, Adina

bridgette_gan-300Praised by the Washington Post for her “gorgeous singing,” soprano Bridgette Gan is quickly establishing herself as an exciting upcoming talent. Recently, Ms. Gan made a last minute debut as Marie in Palm Beach Opera’s production of La fille du regiment, which critics called “a tour de-force…vocally beautiful and consistent with a rich tone and sparkling high notes.”

Ms. Gan’s 2016-2017 season includes a return to Opera Orlando for her role debut of Norina in Don Pasquale, as well as her company and role debut with St. Petersburg Opera as Adina in L’elisir d’amore. In concert she returns to the South Florida Symphony, and was featured at the Newport Music Festival during the summer of 2016.

Last season Ms. Gan appeared with Opera Orlando as Mademoiselle Silberklang in a double bill of The Impresario and Les mamelles de Tirésias, returned to Palm Beach Opera for her role debut as Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos, and made her mainstage debut with Santa Fe Opera, creating the role of Lila in the world premiere of Cold Mountain by Jennifer Higdon.

In concert she appeared with the Toledo Symphony for their Rodgers and Hammerstein Celebration concert, South Florida Symphony for their And the Tony Goes To concert tour, and appeared as a guest artist for Palm Beach Opera’s Opera on the Waterfront concert. Previous seasons include a debut with the Center for Contemporary Opera as Jackie Kennedy in a reading of Chandler Carter’s new opera Bobby, and the soprano soloist in Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 with the U.S. Marine Chamber Orchestra.

We’re thrilled to have her adorn our stage with her dazzling talent.
