Soprano Darci Bultema has performed on the operatic stage in a variety of roles, such as La Contessa in Le nozze di Figaro, Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, Cleopatra in Handel’s Giulio Cesare, Clorinda in La Cenerentola, The Female Chorus in Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia, and Lavinia in Bononcini’s Camilla. Originally from North Dakota, Dr. Bultema has brought her talent and versatility to opera companies across the United States via Florida Grand Opera, Tulsa Opera, Natchez Opera, Peabody Opera, and the Fargo Moorhead Opera.
In addition to her operatic repertoire, Dr. Bultema has appeared as a soloist in orchestral works with The Florida Philharmonic, New World Symphony, Miami Chamber Symphony, Peabody Symphony Orchestra, Washington, D.C. Youth Orchestra, and the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony. In these venues, her voice has been showcased in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, the Chants d’Auvergne of Canteloube, Griffes’ Three Poems of Fiona Macleod, and oratorios of Bach, Handel, Haydn, and Rossini.
Dr. Bultema’s talent and promise have been recognized and nurtured through her participation as a young artist with Florida Grand Opera, Tulsa Opera, and Natchez Opera. Classical New Jersey's concert review of Bultema’s interpretation of Cilea’s Il son l’umile ancella, Son pochi fiori from Mascagni’s L’amico Fritz - and Bachelet’s exquisite art song Chére Nuit - noted “Miss Bultema’s ability to float those stratospheric notes with ease and grace” as well as her “luscious legato line, completely even production throughout the compass and sumptuous crescendos.”
Dr. Bultema was honored at Peabody Conservatory of Music with a prestigious Graduate Performance diploma.
