Praised in Opera Now for her “angelic lyric soprano voice”, Charlotte Dobbs made her European debut in 2009 as Corinna in Il viaggio a Reims at the Pesaro Rossini Festival, and returned to Italy to sing Rosina in the theaters of Jesi, Fermo, and Ravenna. She also made her debut with the Chicago Opera Theater, singing Servilia in La clemenza di Tito with Jane Glover in a new production of Christopher Alden. Under the baton of Lorin Maazel, she appeared as Governess in the Chateauville Foundation’s new production of The Turn of the Screw in both 2009 and 2010. Other recent credits include Amina, Donna Elvira, the title role in Tchaikovsky's Iolanta, Nuria in Ainadamar, and Countess in Le nozze di Figaro with the Curtis Opera Theater.
In 2008, she appeared in recital with Mitsuko Uchida at the Marlboro Music Festival, performing Schoenberg's Book of the Hanging Gardens. Also at Marlboro, she gave her first performance of Schoenberg's Second String Quartet, to be reprised in 2011 with the Saratoga Chamber Players. She has been featured in three programs with the New York Festival of Song, most recently “The Sweetest Path” at Caramoor and Merkin Hall. Her recent appearances also include the title role in Iphigenie in Aulide, Elettra in Idomeneo, and Juno in La Calisto, all at the Juilliard School. Miss Dobbs made her Kimmel Center and Carnegie Hall debuts in Nielsen's Third Symphony with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra in 2008, under the baton of Alan Gilbert. In recent years, she participated in master classes with Alberto Zedda, Wolfgang Holzmair, Matthew Polenzani, and Dawn Upshaw.
