Brazilian-American soprano Sophia Hunt's performances have been praised as "trenchant” and “vocally skilled" (Opera News), "exceptionally strong both vocally and dramatically" (Parterre Box), and "vibrant and musically intelligent" (Broad Street Review). Sophia is a current member of the Dutch National Opera Studio. She is from Brooklyn, NY, and received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music, where she most recently held the Rubenstein Fellowship and worked with Carol Vaness. She was the top prize winner in the 2023 Gerda Lissner Foundation International Vocal Competition and the 2023 Orpheus Vocal Competition, and a national semifinalist in the 2022 Metropolitan Opera Laffont Competition.

This season, Sophia sings Erste Dame (Die Zauberflöte) and Suor Dolcina (Suor Angelica), as well as covers Violetta (La traviata), with Dutch National Opera.  Her past roles include Don Giovanni (Donna Anna and Donna Elvira), Così fan tutte (Fiordiligi), La clemenza di Tito (Vitellia), and Rene Orth’s Empty the House (Faith). In 2022, she was a studio artist with Wolf Trap Opera, where she sang Susannah (Mrs. Gleaton) and covered La traviata (Violetta).

Very clean, rich, and lush sound. Very sensitive dynamic phrasing... Strong use of the words and diction... nuanced with lots of colors that seem to be informed by the character.
