June Anderson (b1952)

Educated to a high level in Connecticut, June Anderson commenced her vocal studies at the age of eleven. At seventeen she was the then youngest-ever finalist in the Metropolitan Opera auditions. Having graduated from Yale University with a degree in French, she decided upon a career in music and studied voice with Robert Leonard in New York. After a slow start she made her operatic début as the Queen of the Night/The Magic Flute with the New York City Opera in 1978. During her time with this company she appeared in a range of operas: from Giulio Cesare to The Golden Cockerel by way of Don Giovanni, Il barbiere di Siviglia, Rigoletto and La traviata. Like her distinguished predecessor Beverley Sills, she sang all three soprano parts in Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffmann, in 1981. Anderson left the city opera in 1982 to appear in Europe, having been recommended to an Italian agent by baritone Sherrill Milnes. She made her European début at Rome in 1982 in Semiramide and went on to appear in bel canto rôles including Lucia/Lucia di Lammermoor (Florence, Geneva, 1983), Amina/La sonnambula (Venice, 1984), Marie/La fille du régiment (Parma, 1984), Isabelle/Robert le diable (Paris, 1985) and Desdemona/Otello (Rossini) (Venice, 1986). She made her débuts at La Scala, Milan and at Covent Garden in La sonnambula and Semiramide respectively in 1986, and at the Metropolitan Opera in 1989 in Rigoletto, singing
