ABOUT SADIE

Sadie Spivey (she/her) has been recognized for her diverse performance abilities as a vocal artist and as an actor. Whether it is creating new work or giving a unique voice to established repertoire, Sadie believes that stories help us feel seen and heard, fulfilling our innate desire to connect. Collaboration and storytelling are at the forefront of her artistry.

 

Based in NYC, Sadie most recently performed in Dell' Arte Opera's "Wages of Sin" festival, appearing as Nora is Tickets, Please! and in Chansons de Baudelaire: Les Fleurs du Mal. In March, Sadie performed in and directed AWAKENING, a staged, collaborative song recital inspired by the tradition of protest music. Featuring works by Eve Beglarian, Juhi Bansal, Gilda Lyons, among others, AWAKENING addressed social injustices of gender, race, and class through an international lens. The show was presented at the cell theatre in Chelsea as a part of City Lyric Opera's artist-led season.

Sadie is a recent graduate of Bard Conservatory, where she obtained her Master’s in Vocal Arts. During her time at Bard, she performed the Vixen in Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen, as well as Fleta in Gilbert & Sullivan’s Iolanthe. She appeared as a soloist in French and German cabaret evenings, Handel’s Messiah, Schubert’s Mass in G and in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, Part VI with the Albany Symphony.  

 

An avid recitalist, Sadie recently presented her recital Dream and Variations, wherein she premiered “Dream Songs” by Scott Eggert, which was written for her in 2022. Also featured on the program were pieces by Susan Botti, David Biedenbender, and Osvaldo Golijov. 

 

Sadie made her directorial debut with the Bard Sinfonietta Project, a new music student collective, where she directed and performed in Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale. In 2022, Sadie collaborated with a few of her classmates on alone.is.together.is, a staged recital exploring the complexities of loneliness and belonging. 


Equally at home in opera and musical theatre, Sadie returned to The Ohio Light Opera in 2023 as a Resident Artist, singing Guenevere in Camelot and Nanette in No, No, Nanette. During the 2022 summer season, she performed Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance and Luisa in The Fantasticks with OLO.
