Susanne Burgess is a British soprano described as "a unique combination of precision and wonder (Opera Wire)" and “lyric splendor, with a rich, even legato (Parterre Box).” In early 2020, Susanne performed the role of Violetta Valéry in ​La Traviata, starring in 8 performances as part of the Winter USA Tour with Teatro Lirico d’Europa. She then took on the demanding role of Cio-Cio San in Madama Butterfly at Opera New Hampshire. Susanne was scheduled to make her role debut as Gilda in a new production of Rigoletto at Opera North before the COVID19 pandemic sadly postponed these performances. Among efforts to preserve art and opera during the pandemic, Susanne took part in the Summer Season at Opera Theater St. Louis presenting arias and ensembles in a virtual festival which culminated in a public master class with the great Patricia Racette. For the 2020-2021 season, Susanne will join The Atlanta Opera studio for their innovative "Reimagine Opera" series including I Pagliacci and Kaiser von Atlantis among other titles to be announced soon.

In 2019 Susanne made her debut with New York City Opera as Hannah in the World Premiere of ​Dear Erich by Ted Rosenthal. She returned to the company in the role of Musetta in Puccini’s ​La Bohème. Later that year, she joined Teatro Grattacielo in NYC as Mimi in Leoncavallo’s ​La Bohème and​ La Principessa in Respighi’s ​La bella dormente nel bosco. Susanne made her Carnegie Hall debut in 2017 with the New England Symphony singing the Soprano solos the Fauré Requiem and John Trotta’s The Seven Last Words of Christ, and returned to the
“Burgess blossomed into her warm timbre, while she sang and radiated a genuine affection that uplifted the audience... with a unique combination of precision and wonder. She highlighted best energy that Leoncavallo intended for his version of “La Bohème” and was a delight to see perform.”
