Biography
Sasha Cooke

During the 2019–20 season, two-time Grammy-winning mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke returns to San Francisco Opera to reprise the title role in Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel and Laurene Jobs in Mason Bates’s The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs. In addition to reuniting with Jaap van Zweden and the New York Philharmonic for Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, Resurrection, at David Geffen Hall, Barbican Centre, and Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw, she sings Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 with Myung-Whun Chung at Rome’s Accademia nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Beethoven’s Missa solemnis with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Robert Spano, Ravel’s Shéhérazade with Radio Filharmonisch Orkest and James Gaffigan, Lieberson’s Rilke Songs with The Cleveland Orchestra and Michael Tilson Thomas, and Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Riccardo Muti.

She is building on a decade of collaborating with the San Francisco Symphony to undertake an artist-in-residency encompassing concerts with the orchestra, educational events, and a solo recital in Davies Hall. Additional recitals include a return to London’s Wigmore Hall, with Malcolm Martineau, and the Kennedy Center’s Terrace Theater, with Julius Drake, as well as a solo recital for Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, with Pei-Yao Wang. She also sings the world premiere of Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer’s Violins of Hope with violinist Daniel Hope for Music at Kohl Mansion.

Ms. Cooke has sung at The Metropolitan Opera, English National Opera, Opéra national de Bordeaux, and Gran Teatre del Liceu, as well as with more than 60 orchestras worldwide under conductors including Andrew Davis, Gustavo Dudamel, Bernard Haitink, James Levine, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Edo de Waart, and Franz Welser-Möst. She has recorded for labels including Hyperion, BIS, and Chandos. She studied at Rice University, The Juilliard School, and The Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program.
