Nicoletta Berry is a classical vocalist whose soprano breathes life into a wide range of multidisciplinary projects, recitals, opera, and concert work. This season, Nicoletta anticipates her Carnegie Hall debut as the soprano soloist in Beethoven's Christ on the Mount of Olives with the Cecilia Chorus of New York, conducted by Mark Shapiro in April 2024. Nicoletta has shared her luminous voice with the New York Festival of Song, Aspen Opera Theatre, and Juilliard Opera and recital stages across New York City.
Nicoletta's journey reached a milestone in 2022 as she graduated from The Juilliard School, accompanied by the Stephen Novick Grant for Career Advancement. Her postgraduate pursuits led to her recognition as a Renee Fleming Artist, where her role as Zerlina in Mozart's Don Giovanni with the Aspen Opera Theatre garnered praise for its charm and charisma. Her operatic endeavors often reveal her affinity for early music, evident in her portrayals of Giunone in Luigi Rossi's L'Orfeo and Clizia in the digital rendition of Handel's Teseo. Continuing her collaborative relationship with the New York-based early music ensemble, Twelfth Night Ensemble, she showcases her prowess in an upcoming performance on October 30th at the Bruno Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center, highlighting her rendition of Handel's Armida Abbandonata, performed previously at the Stissing Center in New York where Berry sang with “eloquent force and operatic gestures by an animated Berry which received wild applause from the audience who felt her emotion.”
Nicoletta Berry holds a Bachelor's degree from The Manhattan School of Music and a Master's from The Juilliard School, mentored by Marlena Malas. She is currently based in New York City.
