BEVERLY O'REGAN THIELE

VANESSA, VANESSA

Beverly O'Regan Thiele is a consummate singing actress noted for the intensity and honesty of her character portrayal with a clear, crystalline, silver-toned, singing voice, who has earned critical and popular acclaim for her interpretations of many important roles from repertoire of the twentieth century, including Magda Sorel in Menotti's The Consul, (Washington National Opera and Berkshire Opera and recorded on the Newport Classics Label), Blanche in Previn's A Streetcar Named Desire, the title role in Jenufa (Washington National Opera), Marie Antoinette in Corigliano's The Ghosts of Versailles and title role in Katya Kabanova (Lyric Opera of Chicago), leading soprano roles in two world premieres for Michael Nyman: "Woman" (three distinctive characters) in Man and Boy: Dada as well as Avril in Love Counts (Badisches Staatstheater, Karlsruhe), the title role in Therese Raquin (DiCapo Opera Theater), Miss Jessel in The Turn of the Screw (Broomhill Opera Festival, UK), Abigail in The Crucible and the title role in Floyd's Susannah (Des Moines Metro Opera).

Other roles for which she has earned acclaim include Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni (Glimmerglass Opera, Mississippi Opera and Toledo Opera), Fiordiligi in Cosi fan tutte (Lake George Opera, Opera Omaha and Fort Worth Opera), Musetta in La Boheme (New York City Opera and Orlando Opera), Chrysothemis in Elektra and Giulietta in Les Contes d'Hoffman (Badisches Staatstheater, Karlsruhe).

Ms. O'Regan Thiele has appeared on the stages of the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago and Washington National Opera in repertoire that include Die Walküre, Elektra, Die Frau ohne Schatten, War and Peace, and Moses and Aaron. She recently ventured into the Musical Theatre genre as Rosabella in Frank Loesser's The Most Happy Fella with Utah Festival Opera & Musical Theatre. Last autumn, she journeyed to Hungary to repeat her success in The Seagull. Last season, she returned to the Lyric Opera of Chicago for their production of A Streetcar Named Desire as Blanche Dubois.

This season, she will sing Blanche Dubois for Opera Grand Rapids, debut with Michigan Opera as Beatrice in A View from the Bridge, and with the Utah Festival Opera & Musical Theatre in the title role of Barber's Vanessa, and appear with Beth Morrison Productions as Mrs. Williamson in David Lang's new work The Difficulty of Crossing a Field.

Notable appearances on the concert stage include Mozart's Requiem at Avery Fisher Hall, Dritte Dame in Elektra with the Chicago Symphony under Daniel Barenboim, Mozart's C-Minor Mass and Bristow's Daniel, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Verdi's Requiem, Händel's Messiah, Patrick Cassidy's Famine Remembrance Suite in Chicago's Symphony Space and Children of Lir, Rossini's Stabat Mater and Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass. She is heard on the recordings of the new releases of Boosey and Hawkes Britten Folk Songs as well as several Hal Leonard Publishing projects. She is a frequent guest artist with the Musicians of Ma'alwyck in Upstate New York.
