Her “superb” performance as Nicklausse in the Martina Arroyo Foundation’s 2013 production of Les Contes d’Hoffmann was hailed by both The New York Times and Opera News. Kirsten’s other role credits include Zerlina in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Stephano in Gounod’s Romeo et Juliette and the Neighbour in Stravinsky’s Mavra.

In the United States she has performed at Jordan Hall (Boston, MA), The National Opera Center (New York City), the Metropolitan Opera Guild (NYC), Harris Hall (Aspen, CO) and Wheeler Opera House (Aspen, CO).

This past July, Kirsten was a featured artist on WQXR radio’s McGraw Hill Young Artists’ Showcase (NYC). She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Wellesley College and her Master of Music degree from Mannes College.

Kirsten was one of the founding members of LoftOpera – a hugely successful underground Brooklyn opera company that will be hosting Joyce DiDonato’s CD release party this fall – taking on an administrative and creative role at the company’s inception. She has since then taken on several new start-up projects in the music field and continues to strive to create more opportunity and exposure for classical musicians and music.
