Northern Californian turned Bostonian, soprano Sara DeLong is a firm believer in accessible and life changing performing arts with a penchant for contemporary works and modern interpretations of the classics. Sara offers audiences “a bearing and a voice that shine” (Davis Enterprise) in "unpretentious" (Sacramento Choral Calendar) and "soaring" (Worcester Telegram) performances.
In her element in musical theatre as much as opera, Sara is a frequent player of operetta. With Gilbert and Sullivan as her bread and butter, Sara has made a meal of the roles of Mabel (Pirates of Penzance), Gianetta (Gondoliers), Phoebe (Yeomen of the Guard), Patience (Patience), and Phyllis (Iolanthe.) Next year she takes on the role of Lisa in the Sudbury Savoyards' 2023 production of The Grand Duke. Favorite operatic roles include Grilletta (Haydn- Der Apotheker), La Ciesca (Puccini- Gianni Schicchi), Donna Elvira (Mozart- Don Giovanni), and Pamina (Mozart- Die Zauberflöte). Previous musical theatre roles include Cinderella (Into the Woods), Thomas Jefferson (1776), and Mother Abbess (Sound of Music). When not on stage, Sara can be found producing, directing, engaging in excessive sass, or else concert managing for the award winning Blue Heron ensemble.
