Michele Patzakis

Performing

 “Michele Patzakis’ Susanna is dark sounding and well supported. Her voice resonates with an energy that she channels not into vocal show but into the person of Susanna herself. Created is something tough knowing and resilient”.
THE NEW-YORK TIMES

Teaching

“Professor Patzakis is incredibly enthusiastic and heart-warming. She made each student feel good about their performances and improved each one of her students”

Directing

Opera brings together my many loves: music, theater, art, dance and the spoken word. Every genre and style can be used to communicate a story,  illuminate and inspire. I enjoy working with other artists to bring works to life, and allow the music and the performer to shine.
