Ms. Sherman recently made “a sensational European debut” (Financial Times) at the English National Opera in Kaijia Saariaho’s L’Amour de loin as the Pilgrim to rave reviews from the international press. Last season, she made her German operatic debut as Concepcion in L’heure espagnole at Oper Frankfurt and premiered the mezzo-soprano lead role in Ricky Ian Gordon’s Rappahannock County at Virginia Opera.

Ms. Sherman sang Verdi’s Messa da requiem with period instruments at the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele and at the Opéra de Vichy under Michael Hofstetter.
