Hope Briggs

Ms. Briggs, well known for her dramatic portrayals and her distinctive soprano voice, presents a concert of Black Spirituals.

In 2004 she made her impressive San Francisco Opera debut as the Duchess of Parma in Busoni's Doktor Faust, for which Opera News stated, "…Briggs was stellar, delivering one of the evening's highlights with her lusciously intoned, lovelorn aria."

She was presented in recital by African-Americans for Los Angeles Opera and has had the honor of performing for Ms. Jessye Norman at the presentation of the Trophée des Arts by the Alliance Francais.

Other operatic roles have included The First Lady in Die Zauberflöte at Frankfurt Opera, the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro and Micäela in Carmen at Opera Company of Brooklyn, Donna Elvira in Donna Giovann and The First Lady in Die Zauberflöte at Opera San Jose, the title role of Suor Angelica at Pacific Repertory Opera, Leonora in Il Trovatore and Donna Anna in Don Giovanni at Operesque Classical Concerts, and Strawberry Woman in Houston Grand Opera's National Tour of Porgy and Bess. She created the role of Paula in the world premiere of Hector Armienta's River of Women.

Ms. Briggs has received numerous awards and also has an extensive solo recital career.
