Sarah Beaty, mezzo-soprano, has been hailed as “the model of bel canto clarity and brilliance” by Cleveland Classical. Since moving to Los Angeles in January 2013, she has quickly established herself on the west coast opera and theater scene. A specialist in contemporary music, she sang in the world premiere production of Chris Cerrone’s Pulitzer Prize opera, Invisible Cities, with LA’s leading avant garde opera company, The Industry.

In the fall of 2013 she premiered Prometheus Bound with the Center for New Performance at the Getty Villa Amphitheater and was a featured soloist in Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor and CPE Bach’s Magnificat with the Camerata of LA.
