Raehann Bryce-Davis has been hailed by the New York Times as a "striking mezzo soprano" and by the San Francisco Chronicle for her "electrifying sense of fearlessness."  2021/22 includes performances of Der Komponist in Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen; Preziosilla in Verdi's La Forza del Destino at Théâtre du Capitole; Azucena in three productions of Verdi’s Il Trovatore at The Glimmerglass Festival, LA Opera and Staatstheater Nürnberg, Gods and Mortals at The Glimmerglass Festival; and selections of Wagner’s Lohengrin as Ortrud and Die Walküre as Fricka.   Her company debuts include La Monnaie de Munt as La Zia Principessa in Puccini's Suor Angelica’ Konzert und Theater St Gallen as Joan of Arc in Tchaikovsky's Maid of Orleans; and Teatro alla Scala as Ulrica in Verdi's Un Ballo in Maschera.  Last season featured highlights such as her role debut as Eboli in Verdi’s Don Carlos at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen; her LA Opera debut in the World Premiere of Aucoin and Ruhl’s Eurydice, a coproduction with The Metropolitan Opera; and her role debut as Sara in Roberto Devereux opposite Angela Meade and Ramon Vargas.

Additional credits include Leonora in Donizetti’s La Favorite at the Teatro Massimo di Palermo; Marguerite in Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust conducted by Maestro John Nelson with the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de Costa Rica; Ms. Alexander in Satyagraha at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen; Kristina in The Makropulos Affair at the Janáček Brno Festival; Wellgunde in Wagner’s Die Ring-Trilogie at Theater an der Wien; Madeline Mitchell in Heggie’s Three Decembers at Opera Maine: and Nezhata in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sadko at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen.

Raehann’s concert highlights include the world premiere of Paul Moravec’s Sanctuary Road at Carnegie Hall (which won a Grammy nomination); Verdi’s Requiem with conductor Kent Nagano and the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal at the Olympic Stadium; Elgar’s Sea Pictures at the Musikverein in Vienna with the Tonkünstler Orchestra; Verdi's Requiem with the Oratorio Society of New York at Carnegie Hall; the world premiere of Anthony Davis's We Call the Roll with The Lied Society; Martinů’s Julietta with the American Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall; Corigliano’s Of Rage and Remembrance at the Aspen Music Festival; the world premiere of Come, My Tan-Faced Children by Melissa Dunphy at Lyric Fest; Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine; Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky with Maestro Philippe Entremont at Manhattan School of Music; and Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 with the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra.

As a producer/performer, Raehann has released "To the Afflicted," her first music video, which received much critical acclaim and was chosen as an official video for World Opera Day. Her second digital short Brown Sounds was co-produced with LA Opera and Aural Compass Projects, and won Best Music Video at film festivals around the globe including the New York International Film Awards, New York Cinematography Awards, Hollywood Boulevard Film Awards, the Anatolian Short Film Festival, and the Silk Road Film Awards - Cannes. LA Opera says:  “Brown Sounds is masterminded by the extraordinary Raehann Bryce-Davis, a rising star whose 2020 LA Opera appearances made audiences stand up and take notice. It's an evocative vocal piece tailored specifically for her ravishing mezzo-soprano.”

She is the 2018 recipient of the prestigious George London Award at the George London Competition; the 2017 1st Place and Audience Prize-winner of the Concorso Lirico Internazionale di Portofino competition, chaired by Dominique Meyer; winner of the 2016 Richard F.
