Soprano Julia Bullock is recognized as an “impressive, fast-rising soprano… poised for a significant career” (The New York Times). Equally at home with opera and concert repertoire, she has captivated and inspired audiences through her versatile artistry, probing intellect and commanding stage presence. Opera News extols, “Bullock's radiant soprano shines brightly and unfailingly… Most compellingly, however, she communicates intense, authentic feeling, as if she were singing right from her soul.” This season Miss Bullock makes a San Francisco Opera debut in the world premiere of Girls of the Golden West composed by John Adams to a libretto by Peter Sellars, and she joins Dutch National Opera in a company premiere of Simon McBurney’s production of The Rake’s Progress. She is a founding core member of the American Modern Opera Company. Accolades include the 2016 Sphinx Medal of Excellence, a 2015 Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship and Lincoln Center’s 2015 Martin E. Segal Award.
