Cover Story

Mentor, Muse, Mother - The Many Roles of Susan Graham
by Claudia Friedlander

Susan Graham has been wowing audiences and garnering rave reviews for over 20 years—and the Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano shows no signs of slowing down. She started off 2017 singing with the Philadelphia Orchestra, and this month she debuts a new role: Mrs. De Rocher in Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking. Graham is no stranger to this work, of course, since Heggie wrote the main character, Sister Helen Prejean, for Graham when it debuted at San Francisco Opera in 2000. Graham discusses this new role and her new stage of life, as well as her advice for up-and-coming singers, in this exclusive interview.
