During the 2014/15 season she will sing the Amina (role debut) in a new production of Bellini's La Sonnambula and Aithra in concert performances of Strauss' Die ägyptische Helena/The Egyptian Helen. This summer she sang Madame Popescu in Mozart's Der Schauspieldirektor/The Impresario and the Cook in Stravinsky's Le Rossignol for Santa Fe Opera and other engagements later this season include Aminta (Strauss' Die schweigsame Frau/The Silent Woman) at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, the title role in Handel's Semele in Seattle and Konstanze (Die Entführung aus dem Serail) at the Hamburg State Opera. She has also been engaged by the Staatsoper in Berlin to sing Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos, a role with which she has brought the house down in Bordeaux, Hamburg and, in 2013/14, Frankfurt. This American soprano has been reinvited to give a recital at the Schubertiade in Schwarzenburg in 2015. Other roles with which Brenda Rae has enjoyed enormous success in Frankfurt in recent seasons have included Violetta (La Traviata), the Governess (The Turn of the Screw), Lora (Wagner's Die Feen/The Fairies, in concert, available on CD/OehmsClassics), Olympia (Hoffmanns Erzählungen/The Tales of Hoffmann) and the title roles in Lucia di Lammermoor, La Giuditta and Maria Stuarda (in concert). Other places where Brenda Rae has appeared have included the Vienna State Opera, the Glyndebourne Festival, BBC Proms and the Carnegie Hall in New York. She studied at the Juilliard School, Juilliard Opera Center New York and Glimmerglass Opera's Young American Artists Program. She was awarded first prize by the Licia Albanese Puccini Foundation in 2007.
