Soprano Lori Guilbeau is a professional opera singer and teacher based in New York City. After winning the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions Grand Finals in 2010, she made her Met debut as the High Priestess in Aida. She has since returned for further performances of the High Priestess, as the Heavenly Voice in Don Carlo, and for productions of Nabucco and Götterdämmerung. Lori has also given recitals across the United States as part of the Metropolitan Opera Rising Star series. Starting with her German debut as the title role in Ariadne auf Naxos, she spent three seasons at Theater Kiel, singing more than ten leading roles, including Sieglinde (Die Walküre), Amelia (Un ballo in maschera), Valentine (Les Huguenots), and the title role in Arabella. Following her Carnegie Hall debut with the American Symphony Orchestra, Opera News declared that "resplendent soprano Lori Guilbeau sang [Esmerelda] with a soaring, rhapsodic sound."
Mrs. Guilbeau is a pupil of renowned voice teacher Patricia McCaffrey. She passes on what her teacher has taught her, while adding her own touch and personal experience as a young singer. Lori has previously taught privately in both the US and in Germany, and at the IVAI program in Israel. She is also in demand for teaching masterclasses, including at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, and at many top universities across the USA as part of the Metropolitan Opera Rising Star series.
Update: Since many have asked, I have been teaching lessons via Skype for years. Many professionals (including myself!) have used this to stay in touch with our teachers as we sing around the world. It is always great to do in person lessons, but Skype lessons are a fantastic tool in today's corona environment.
