Cassandra Aaron Black has performed in Italy, Switzerland, Germany, China, Thailand, and throughout the United States. The Houston Chronicle described her as "Moving, masterful, and marvelous," and Culture Map, "Nothing short of thrilling."
Ms. Black has portrayed more than twenty of opera's leading ladies in both the contemporary and standard repertoire such as Marie Antoinette in The Ghosts of Versailles, Doll Common in Vera of Las Vegas, Floria Tosca, Leonore in Fidelio, Donna Anna, and Fiordiligi, to name a few. Some of the houses she has enjoyed working for include Opera Siam, Opera Philadelphia, St. Petersburg Opera, and Skylight Music Theatre.
Cassandra's operatic highlights include portraying the extremely demanding role of The Dirty Duchess, Margaret of Argyll in Thomas Ades' Powder Her Face for which she received international critical acclaim, and traveling to Bangkok for the title role she created in Somtow Sutcharitkul's Snow Dragon at Opera Siam. She also created the role of Bahusodari (a statue who comes to life) in Sutcharitkul's Suwana Sama, one of ten operas in his epic cycle on the lives of Buddah. In 2020 she will make her role debut at Opera Siam as Salome.
In concert, Cassandra has sung over twenty oratorios with orchestras throughout the United States and beyond, her farthest being Beethovens' Ninth Symphony with the Siam Philharmonic.
