For one performance only, internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Tammy Hensrud performs a lively and sumptuous program, From Chanson to Cabaret as part of White Barn Theatre's 2004 summer series at the Lucile Lortel Theatre.
Hensrud made her Metropolitan Opera debut under the baton of James Levine as Rossweisse in Die Walküre. Equally at home on the operatic stage, and with more than 35 roles in her repertoire, she is also a champion of contemporary music, Hensrud has sung the World Premiere Performance of Christoph Hohlfeld's Zwei Legenden for the Sud-Deutsche Rundfunk, Richard Yardumian's To Mary in Heaven, Richard Ratner's Spoon River Anthology, Mrs. Evans, in the Blitzstein/Lehrman Opera Sacco and Vanzetti, and with the Manhattan Chamber Orchestra at Merkin Concert Hall, Gerold Chenoweth's Two Poems by E.E. Cummings recently released on CD.
