On the rise, Abigail Krawczyńska is garnering critical and audience acclaim due to her virtuostic and heartfelt portrayals. Last season Abigail settled into her new Arizona locale by taking First Prize at the Southwest Vocal Competition, singing with The Arizona Musicfest Chorus, performing the soprano solo in Rutter's Requiem, and also made her directing debut working with Detour Company Theatre, an inclusive theatre company in Scottsdale.
This season, Abigail will sing Adele in Die Fledermaus with Amarillo Opera, Suor Genovieffa in Suor Angelica with Opera West, and Monica in The Medium with Cactus Chamber Ensemble. She previously sang the saucy Musetta in La Bohème with Boston Opera Collaborative, and was the featured soprano in Cantos de Taos quartet at the Taos Opera Institute in New Mexico in the 2017-2018 season.
The 2016-2017 season saw Ms. Krawczyńska make stunning role debuts as the vocally punishing, but ever charming Zerbinetta in Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos, Marzelline in Fidelio, and Adamo’s heart-wrenching Beth in Little Women. On the concert and recital stages, she has also garnered praise for her performance of Richard Strauss’ Brentano Lieder with the Philharmonic Society of Arlington, and for her recent solo recital in Boston, MA.
Aside from the Southwest Vocal Competition, Ms. Krawczyńska has won a number of prizes for her work including First Prize in The Peter Elvins Voice Competition in 2017, First Place in The Philharmonic Society of Arlington Young Artist Competition in 2016, and First Place in the Dr. Peatee Art Song Competition in 2009.
Abigail is currently the soprano section leader at Paradise Valley United Methodist Church, and will be the soprano section leader for the Arizona Musicfest Chorus in 2020. She will also join both The Phoenix Theatre (Sound of Music) and Arizona Opera (La Bohème) as an ensemble member in the 2019-2020 season.
