Possessing a warm, lyric voice, Jennifer Tiller has established herself as one of America's most versatile artists on the operatic stage. Having the ability to relate to and create many types of characters, Jennifer has sung the roles of leading ladies, boys, animals, maids, goddesses, gypsies, and everything in between. She has a true Zwischenfach, a quality that allows her to ably and beautifully perform roles in both the lyric soprano and lyric mezzo-soprano repertoires.
Jennifer has a long history with New York City Opera, a company she was able to call home full time from 2004 to 2008, and to make guest appearances with from 2009 to 2012. Her debut there was in Richard Strauss' Daphne, singing alongside Elizabeth Futral, with George Manahan conducting and Stephen Lawless directing. Daphne was followed by many productions, most notably a live telecast of Madama Butterfly, as part of Live from Lincoln Center. This performance received an Emmy award in the Creative Arts category of Outstanding Special Class-Classical Musical and Dance Programs.
Having performed with numerous opera companies throughout the United States, Jennifer has also sung in Europe and in Asia. Described by the press as "a stellar singer and actress", she enjoys exploring and performing music from the Baroque to the contemporary. In addition to performing on the operatic stage, she is fond of singing in traditional concerts as well as engaging in reading of new works.
Upcoming highlight for Jennifer this spring 2013 (March) is her debut at Carnegie Hall with the American Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Leon Botstein. She will be singing the role of Emmy in Heinrich Marschner's “Der Vampyr.”
