    Cynthia Clarey was born in Smithfield, Virginia and raised in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. She earned a Bachelor of Music degree from Howard University in Washington, DC, where she studied voice with Carolyn V. Grant, and a Post-graduate Diploma from the Juilliard School in New York City, studying with Florence Page Kimball and Hans Heinz.

    Ms. Clarey is probably best known for her portrayals of the title role of Bizet’s Carmen, which she has sung in North America, South America, Spain, France, England, Japan, Australia, Germany, and Austria.

    Her operatic debut was with the American Opera Center as Pamina in Mozart’s The Magic Flute. After the Juilliard School, she went to Tri-Cities Opera Company in Binghamton, NY, where she sang a number of soprano, and later, mezzo roles. The company founders, Carmen Savoca and Peyton Hibbitt, were major influences in her career preparation. Clarey made her New York City Opera debut in 1977 as the Countess in Thea Musgrave’s Voice of Ariadne. She has performed in opera companies and festivals all over the world, singing a variety of roles from the Baroque repertoire to several twentieth century premieres.

    Clarey is presently on the voice faculty of the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. She has several recordings on EMI, EMI/Angel, EMI/VirginClassics, Chandos, Koss Classics, Decca, New World Records, and Musicmasters. Her recording of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess with Sir Simon Rattle and the Glyndebourne cast and chorus was nominated for a Grammy award. There is a video of the Porgy and Bess, directed by Trevor Nunn, on Prime Time and a video of Glyndebourne’s 1984 production of Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea, directed by Sir Peter Hall.
