Colorado-born Christina Hazen is quickly making her mark in the opera and concert world. The “dusky-voiced mezzo-soprano” (Cincinnati Music Notes) is a first year Resident Artist at Minnesota Opera, will make her MN Opera debut singing Goffredo in Rinaldo, and cover the roles of the Marquise of Berkenfield in The Daughter of the Regiment and Zerlina in Don Giovanni.

Christina has also performed in the world premieres of Gerald Cohen’s Steal a Pencil for Me and David Conte’s Stonewall, as well as performing new works as part of the Lynx Project: Autism Advocacy Series.

An alumna of Houston Grand Opera’s Young Artists Vocal Academy and a double-graduate of the University of Cincinnati- College Conservatory of Music, Christina was the recipient of the prestigious Norman Treigle Award from the Corbett Opera Competition.
