40 UNDER 40

Ms. Hankey is featured as one of forty young singers to watch in "40 Under 40: A New Generation of Superb Opera Singers," a recent article curated by Operavore & WQXR New York Public Radio.

"Samantha Hankey, a mezzo from Massachusetts, starred as The Elf in The Rose Elf, by David Hertzberg, produced by Unison Media at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn in June. It was one of the most important opera events of the year. Hankey has won various prizes and excelled in every performance I saw her do at Juilliard. She joins the Met this season and will perform in six operas."

SPOTLIGHT ON SAMANTHA HANKEY

In Askonas Holt's new magazine, Samantha sits down for a Q&A that covers everything from what she loves most about her career to her pre-performance ritual of listening to Gamelan music.

"What do you love most about your career?

All of the adventures and challenges! I love that everyday is a bit different; the rehearsal schedule changes, some days there are lessons, travel, days off...I feel I'm well suited to these changes. I couldn't picture myself sitting at a computer all day, five days a week."
