Freddie Love is a multidisciplinary artist. Born and raised in rural Oklahoma (yes, like the musical), Freddie clawed their way off the farm and onto the stage. A classically trained mezzo soprano with powerhouse vocals, Freddie studied opera and musical theatre, both at university and several world renowned young artist festivals and programs. Freddie holds degrees in acting & musical theatre from The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. They also studied classical voice at Oklahoma City University's Bass School of Music.
Performed roles include the title role of Carmen (Mediterranean Opera Studio & Festival), Desiree in A Little Night Music (Hawaii Performing Arts Festival), Madame de Croissy in Dialogues of the Carmelites (OKCU), La Voix in Contes d'Hoffmann (OKCU), and Donna Ribalda in PDQ Bach's The Stoned Guest (OPERAtions).
Freddie also performs operatic drag and burlesque, re-imagining classical opera and musical theatre repertoire through a queer lens. These performances present an otherness, blurring the gender binary and celebrating queer identities.
From clubs and cabarets to singing leading operatic roles around the world, Freddie is a versatile, imaginative performer, serving their audiences campy, heartfelt, glittery medicine. This year, they released their first solo album of rock opera, Wish We Were Here.
Freddie lives in London, UK with their partner and two imaginary dogs.
