American classical singer Julia Bullock has headlined opera productions worldwide, including Theodora at Covent Garden and The Indian Queen at the English National Opera, Bolshoi Theatre and Teatro Real. She created leading roles in the premiere productions of Michael van der Aa’s Upload, John Adams’s Girls of the Golden West, and Terence Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones, and has starred in The Rake’s Progress, Doctor Atomic, and The Magic Flute, which she performed in concert with the LA Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, and in a production by the late Peter Brook on tour in South America. Bullock has collaborated with the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin, Bayerische Rundfunk, NHK Symphony, Philharmonia and London Symphony Orchestra, and has given extensive recital tours at venues including Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, the Concertgebouw, and Elbphilharmonie. She is a much sought-after collaborator, curator and artist-in-residence by symphony orchestras, festivals, museums and music schools. One of Bullock’s major projects, Perle Noire: Meditations for Joséphine explores the roles of bigotry, prejudice, misogyny, racism, and ultimately finding one’s humanity through the self-empowerment of performance via the lens of Joséphine Baker’s life – conceived with Peter Sellars, Tyshawn Sorey and Claudia Rankine, the work is now finding a home in major operatic spaces. Bullock’s solo album debut, Walking in the Dark, was named among the best of 2022 by the New York Times.
