Charismatic soprano Susan Wheeler is an opera singer on the rise. She was recently presented by the renowned conductor Eve Queler (Opera Orchestra of New York) in a concert of Mozart, Dvořák and Verdi arias. Her August 2023 performance was praised as “virtuosic and vocally stunning” (Country Journal).

Metropolitan Opera soprano Carole Farley called Susan’s 2022 performance as Elsa in Lohengrin “superb.” Glory Denied composer Tom Cipullo calls her “a powerhouse.”

Susan returned to Lincoln Center in 2023 as Elsa (Lohengrin) with The Metropolitan Opera Guild, where she sang Anne Truelove (The Rake’s Progress) in 2022. Also in 2023, Ms. Wheeler appeared with New Rochelle Opera as Rosalinde (Die Fledermaus), with the Wagner Society of New York as Elsa (Wagner Duets concert), and Elsa again (Lohengrin) with Opera Susquehanna. Ms. Wheeler sang Chrysothemis (Elektra) in 2021 with the New York Chamber Music Festival at Symphony Space.

In 2019 Susan gave a celebrated concert in Berlin, Germany at the US Embassy in Berlin (Strauss, Mozart, Charpentier) and appeared with Radio KBB as a guest artist (Glory Denied) at the Berlin Airlift Memorial Concert “Fest der Luftbrücke” with the Bundeswehr National Band. She was also heard as Mimi in La Bohème and as Countess in The Marriage of Figaro at the Mediterranean Opera Festival in Sicily. In 2017 critics celebrated her Donna Anna in Don Giovanni in Tuscany as “nuanced and beautifully sung.”

Ms. Wheeler’s opera performances include the three heroines in Les Contes d’Hoffmann (Augusta Opera); Mimi (Brooklyn Opera Company); and Valencienne (Annapolis Opera, Maryland Lyric). She also sang Konstanze in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, the Countess again in Le Nozze di Figaro, Violetta in
La Traviata, and Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus. Her other roles include Elettra (Idomeneo), Strauss’ Die Kaiserin, Chrysothemis, and Salome and the Verdi heroines Luisa Miller and Leonora (Il Trovatore).

An Actors Equity actress, Ms. Wheeler appeared in musicals at the Kennedy Center (Johanna, Sweeney Todd, Journalist, 90 North), in Encores! at City Center New York (Soloist, The New Moon), at the Wolf Trap Performing Arts Center (A Night of Cabaret) and in 2017 as Christine in Phantom of the Opera at the prestigious Warner Theater in Washington, DC.
