Janice Hall Biography

JANICE HALL
Janice Hall’s distinguished career in opera and concert
has included performances at some of the world’s leading opera houses. When she returned to the U.S. from Germany in 2007, she added cabaret and theater to her resume.

Janice Hall's international opera career has taken her to the Vienna State Opera; the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; the Salzburg Festival, and the Komische Oper Berlin. In the U.S., she has appeared with, among others, the Lyric Opera of Chicago; the Washington National Opera at the Kennedy Center; the Santa Fe Opera, and the Houston Grand Opera.
She performed as Violetta in the New York City Opera’s Emmy-winning telecast of La Traviata, in the "Live from Lincoln Center" series on PBS. She has worked with some of the world’s great directors, including Jack O’Brien, Harry Kupfer, Willy Decker, and Calixto Bieito.

More recent appearances include the operatic version of Tony Kushner's play Angels in America, with the BBC Symphony in London, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic; and Jake Heggie's opera Three Decembers with Urban Arias, Des Moines Metro Opera, and Opera Birmingham. In 2019, she appeared in the NY premiere of Britten's opera Owen Wingrave, with Little Opera Theater of NY.

Her off-Broadway debut was in the New York premiere of Monica Bauer's play My Occasion of Sin, at Urban Stages Theater.

Janice is the recipient of both a MAC and Bistro Award for her debut cabaret show, Grand Illusions: The Music of Marlene Dietrich, at the Metropolitan Room in New York. Peter Haas of Cabaret Scenes magazine wrote: “Many performers have “done” Marlene Dietrich, but none has offered her songs more richly, more movingly and with lovelier singing than a newcomer to cabaret, petite and elegant Janice Hall.” Reviewer for Opera News magazine William V. Madison, who has observed Janice in both her opera and cabaret incarnations, commented: “Cabaret Janice is mellow, cool. She spins out the songs in a clear, vibrato-less alto; only her seamless range and her canny legato suggest that she’s ever been near an opera house. Likewise, Janice possesses the wit (and diction) to put over comic numbers with ease.”
