Kelsey Lee was raised in Las Vegas as the oldest of six kids. At the age of two, her parents were leads in the local theatre and brought her along; she was officially hooked. Before university, Kelsey sought out every opportunity to perform in musicals. She has directed, choreographed, or performed in over forty musicals. While attending Brigham Young University – Idaho, she studied with renowned dramatic soprano Kristine Ciesinski and found her passion for opera. She performed as the soprano in the trio for Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti at BYU-I in 2014 before graduating with a BM in Vocal Performance. Kelsey is currently attending the University of Oklahoma, studying with Dr. Leslie Flanagan while working towards her masters in opera performance. She is so excited to be here in Halifax and make her role debut as Antonia in Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffman with the Halifax Summer Opera Festival.
