Jennifer CresswellAnn Arbor, MI
Soprano and librettist Jennifer Cresswell has recently been heard as Der Trommler in Der Kaiser von Atlantis, Magda Sorel in The Consul, Hannah After in As One, as a soloist with the Toledo Symphony, and in concerts featuring the music of George Gershwin and Kurt Weill with tenor George Shirley. She is dedicated to singing in her native tongue and finding the beauty and humanity in otherwise unsympathetic characters.
As a librettist, she has translated and created six opera reductions for school outreach tours, and has written one original opera libretto, Respectable Woman, with composer Kristi Fullerton.
Jennifer is currently a doctoral student at the University of Michigan, where she has been named a Presidential Graduate Fellow by the Rackham Graduate School and an Elsie Choy Lee Scholar by the Center for the Education of Women.
