Julia Bullock has captivated and inspired audiences through her versatile artistry, probing intellect, and commanding stage presence. Opera News extols, “Bullock’s radiant soprano shines brightly and unfailingly… Most compellingly, however, she communicates intense, authentic feeling, as if she were singing right from her soul.”
Recent appearances include the world premiere of Girls of the Golden West, composed by John Adams to a libretto by Peter Sellars, at San Francisco Opera; the company premiere of Simon McBurney’s production of The Rake’s Progress at Dutch National Opera, and the new Peter Sellars production of Doctor Atomic, in which she stars as Kitty Oppenheimer, at Santa Fe Opera.
Her North American recital tour includes performances with Boston Celebrity Series, Cal Performances, Berkeley, University of California Santa Barbara Arts & Lectures, Carnegie Hall, Harriman Jewell Series, and Spivey Hall; and she joins Andris Nelsons and the Boston Symphony Orchestra in a Bernstein Gala before singing Pamina in concert performances of Die Zauberflöte with Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
A founding core member of the American Modern Opera Company (AMOC), Julia received her Artist Diploma from the Juilliard School. Accolades include the Sphinx Medal of Excellence, Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship, Richard F. Gold Grant from the Shoshana Foundation, Lincoln Center’s 2015 Martin E. Segal Award, First Prize at the Naumburg International Vocal Competition, and First Prize at the Young Concert Artists International Auditions.
