Carole Farley

We are honored to welcome GRAMMY-nominated soprano Carole Farley to the ISV team. Carole Farley is also part of ISV Career Consultation/ Career Planning team.


GRAMMY-nominated Carole Farley made her Metropolitan Opera debut at age 19 in the title role of Lulu (the Met's first production), a role she has repeated over 100 times in four languages (German, English, French and Italian). Carole Farley returned to the Metropolitan Opera for the title role in Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk by Shostakovich, the only non-Russian in the cast. Her more than 100 performances of Salome in opera houses around the world have been highly acclaimed. As a regular guest of the world's opera houses, she has performed at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, Canadian Opera, Oper der Stadt Köln, New York City Opera, Welsh National Opera, Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, and in Zürich, Düsseldorf, Paris, Torino, Lyon, Brussels, Nice and Florence, and many other cities. Highlights in her career include the Paris production of The Merry Widow and the Lyubimov-staged Lulu for Torino which was awarded the Abbiati Prize in Italy. She has claimed the role of Jenny in Mahagonny as her own following huge successes in Buenos Aires at Teatro Colón. Her performances of Poulenc's La Voix Humaine and Menotti's The Telephone have been filmed by Decca in co-production with the BBC, and now re-issued on DVD, a best-seller in the New York Times charts. This film, first shown on prime time television by the BBC, is her third for the Poulenc opera. The first two films were done in Sydney by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation with the Sydney Symphony, one in French and one in English.
