After a thirty-five year retirement from performing, Linda Benanti returns to the stage co-headlining concerts with her daughter Laura Benanti. Linda left performing in 1982 in order to dedicate more time to motherhood. She and her husband Sal raised daughters Laura and Marielle to be active and engaged in the arts, sports, their schools, church and community.

After transitioning out of performing, Linda began teaching in Manhattan for her mentor Keith Davis, who encouraged her to open her own studio. There she worked with notable Broadway performers and aspiring singers, some of whom are well known today. Once they moved from the city, Linda opened her still flourishing voice studio in Kinnelon, NJ, where she continues to teach along with her associate teachers.

Linda’s last show was the 1981 revival of Brigadoon. Before that, she was in the national tour of The Odyssey with Yul Brynner, which came to Broadway as the short lived Home Sweet Homer (you can see the poster on the wall at Joe Allen’s!). Some of her favorite Off-Broadway and regional roles include ‘The Girl’ in The Fantastics, ‘Guinevere’ in Camelot, ‘Marion’ in The Music Man, ‘Anne’ in A Little Night Music, ‘Nanette’ in No, No, Nanette, ‘Maria’ in Call Me Madam, ‘Mary’ in The Drunkard, ‘Ella’ in The Bells are Ringing, ‘Sarah’ in Guys and Dolls, ‘Polly’ in The Three Penny Opera, and ‘Amy’ in Where’s Charley? During that period, she also did numerous television commercials and voice overs. She studied voice with Seth Riggs in Los Angeles. Linda is loving Nana to Ella Rose (4), and Luke Charles (brand new!).

Linda is so grateful for the joy-filled gift of performing with her daughter Laura, who is brilliantly talented and an all-around incredible human being.

In 2015–16, soprano Sondra Radvanovsky—a 1995 National Council Auditions winner—pulled off a rare feat: tackling all three of Donizetti’s Tudor queens over the course of one season. The payoff was immense, as it gave operagoers a chance to experience the subtle trajectory of his character portraits—from the tragedy of circumstance facing the young Anne Boleyn to the touching inner turmoil of an aging Elizabeth I as she worked through her feelings for Robert Devereux, a much younger nobleman charged with treason, in the final opera of the trilogy.
