SOLD OUT - Kathleen Battle at the University of Notre Dame


Kathleen Battle hero

On November 15, 2019, The University of Notre Dame presents a SOLD OUT recital of one of the most legendary operatic sopranos of the past century and five-time Grammy Award winner Kathleen Battle. The program this evening is Ms. Battle’s critically acclaimed recital “Underground Railroad: A Spiritual Journey.”

“…the voice as a whole still had the purity and beauty that has always characterized it, and she performed with flair and class — and sometimes without any accompaniment at all… It all added up to a long, packed and thoroughly enjoyable evening; the capacity audience in the Concert Hall certainly got its money’s worth…we got something vital and compelling and very much in the present; and I came away with new respect and admiration for Battle.”
– Anne Midgette, Washington Post, about “Underground Railroad: A Spiritual Journey” at the Kennedy Center

“Ms. Battle sang with remarkable freshness and beauty…she sent high phrases soaring and sang with etheral elegance…with five encores, [this] was her day, her return…The final standing ovation was tumultuous.”
– Anthony Tommasini, New York Times, about “Underground Railroad: A Spiritual Journey” at the Metropolitan Opera
