Kate Jackman performed lead in new opera by Knussen

Graduate Performance Diploma candidate Kate Jackman (MM ’11, Voice) performed the lead in Oliver Knussen’s new one-act opera Higglety Pigglety Pop! in August, during the Festival of Contemporary Music at Tanglewood in Lenox, Mass. The Boston Classical Review wrote, “As the Alice-like character at the center of all the action, soprano Jackman was winningly wily and dauntless, and in good voice.” A blog called Albertitalks by Herbert Burtis stated, “The role of Jennie was brilliantly sung by the wonderful mezzo-soprano Kate Jackman, who embodied  every inch of Jennie … The demanding vocal score fit Ms. Jackson like a glove.”
