Soprano Mary Evelyn Hangley is a graduate of San Francisco Opera’s prestigious Adler Fellowship. She made her San Francisco Opera debut with three hours’ notice as the Mother HANSEL UND GRETEL, in which her performance  was praised for its ‘’…confidence and vocal security in her unexpected San Francisco Opera debut, which proceeded flawlessly.” Recent performances include a role debut as Pamina THE MAGIC FLUTE with the Buffalo Philharmonic conducted by JoAnn Falletta and a last minute house and role debut with Opera San Jose as Leonora IL TROVATORE.

In 2019 Ms. Hangley performed with the San Francisco Symphony in Beethoven Symphony No. 9 and sang the role of Anna Sørensen in Kevin Puts SILENT NIGHT at the 2018 Glimmerglass Festival.
