Mezzo soprano Heather Johnson, hailed by Opera News as "a dramatic singer in the truest sense", has received critical acclaim for her work on both the opera and concert stage. After making her Metropolitan Opera company debut in the 2011 Summer Recital Series, Johnson returned to the Met in the 2012-13 season making her house debut as a Flower Maiden in the new production of Parsifal. In the 2013-14 season Johnson returned to the Metropolitan Opera for their production of A Midsummer Night's Dream and sang the title role in Boston Lyric Opera's new production of Beeson's Lizzie Borden which she repeated this summer at the Tanglewood Festival. Other notable performances include the title roles in La Cenerentola, Hansel and Gretel and Elizabeth Proctor in The Crucible with Sarasota Opera, Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream and Zerlina in Don Giovanni with Boston Lyric Opera, the title role in Carmen with Folkstheater Rostock, Germany and Baltimore Concert Opera, Sainte-Marie in Berlioz's L'enfance du Christ with New York Choral Society at Carnegie Hall, Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia with New Jersey Opera, Opera Southwest and Mill City Summer Opera. The New York Times acclaimed her performance as the title character in Gustav Holst's Savitri, "Heather Johnson sang with penetrating power and natural phrasing… her eyes were haunted and her performance was both grand and intimate, in the best Wagnerian tradition." Upcoming performances include Page in Salome in her Dallas Opera debut as well as a return to the Metropolitan Opera.
