Patricia Racette’s 2016-17 season ignites with a triple run of the title role of Salome for the Metropolitan Opera, Los Angeles Opera, and Pittsburgh Opera. She reprises the femme fatale for a semi-staged version of Salome with Minnesota Orchestra in the summer of 2017. Other engagements include her appearances at the Met in a role debut as Roxane in Cyrano de Bergerac opposite Roberto Alagna as well as gala concerts in Vail, Colorado and Fort Myers, Florida featuring her celebrated album, Diva on Detour, an intimate evening of songs from Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, and Édith Piaf which is available for purchase and digital download from all fine music sources. Patricia also returns to San Francisco Conservatory in January of 2017 to present the pilot program of her intensive seminar “Integrative Artistry” following her command performance master classes last season.
