Tesia Kwarteng is a Ghanaian-American multi-faceted artist equally at home on the operatic stage, on screen and in the studio. She recently led and sang with the vocal ensemble Vox Noire on the recording of the original score by Terence Blanchard for The Woman King  film directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood and starring Viola Davis. Tesia had her first libretto commission titled A Sable Jubilee premiere at the Aspen Music Festival with the music composed by Jasmine Barnes and sung by Will Liverman. She also sang Hélène/Concepcion in a double bill of Faust et Hélène and L’heure Espagnole with New Camerata Opera.


Tesia will next be seen on Broadway as Lady Catherine in Camelot at Lincoln Center Theater and will perform on the Broadway Celebrates Juneteeth concert at Duffy Square. She will also be singing the title role in Carmen at Opera Columbus.


“Tesia Kwarteng has shown her versatility over the course of this season with four completely different characters. Her voice is always solid.”
