Vocalist - Mezzo-Soprano
About

Versatile mezzo-soprano Abigail Fischer’s recent performance in the multi-media opera premiere at The Kitchen in Missy Mazzoli’s Song from the Uproar, composed for her and the NOW Ensemble, prompted reviewers to hail her as “riveting” (New York Times), and to remark upon her “throbbing low register and open-hearted performing style” (Wall Street Journal). A later performance of segments of this work presented by Gotham Chamber Opera noted the “serenely captivating mezzo-soprano Abigail Fischer, who invested everything she sang with rapt concentration and velvety, even tone. And disarming intimacy, too.”(New York Times) For her portrayal of Cherubino in the American premiere of Mercadante’s I due Figaro with Amore Opera, critics described her as “delicious” (Opera News) and “nothing short of stunning” (Stage Magazine).

“Fischer was lustrous and assured.... She made a lovely sound with beautifully supported legato. If you didn’t know that she’d stepped in at the last minute, you’d never have guessed. Moment of the night: Not necessarily the biggest moment, but Fischer’s singing of ‘Die Forelle’ was delightful.”
