Christine Marie Li
CHRISTINE LI (Hansel), lyric mezzo, has performed nationally and abroad in both operatic and chamber literature. Praised for her warmth and vulnerability on stage, recent operatic performances include Beatrice in CU Presents’ digital version of Berlioz’ "Béatrice et Bénédict," Dorabella in Mozart’s "Così fan tutte" and Prince Orlofsky in "Die Fledermaus." Previous seasons have seen her as the soloist for Mozart's "Requiem," Handel’s "Messiah" and chorus for Britten’s "War Requiem" under the baton of James Conlon at the Segerstrom Center and Walt Disney Concert Hall. In the summer of 2019, Li workshopped the role of Alice Hobson in Tom Cipullo’s "Hobson’s Choice" as part of the CU New Opera Workshop (CU NOW). She is pursuing her MM in vocal performance and pedagogy under the tutelage of John Seesholtz.
