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. Immediately after graduating high school, they moved to New York City to study acting & musical theatre at The American Musical & Dramatic Academy (AMDA). After finishing intensive studies at AMDA, Freddie was encouraged by AMDA faculty to continue their studies in classical voice. Freddie received a scholarship to attend OKCU's Bass School of Music (alma mater of Kristin Chenoweth, Kelli O'Hara, and Leontyne Price). While at OKCU, Freddie honed their craft, performing leading roles in operas, singing solos with Canterbury Voices & Oklahoma Philharmonic, winning National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) classical voice competitions, and studying abroad in Italy.
Since graduating, Freddie has performed in opera festivals and concerts around the world.
Performed operatic roles include the title role of Carmen (Mediterranean Opera Studio & Festival in Sicliy, Italy), Desiree in Sondheim's A Little Night Music (Hawaii Performing Arts Festival), Tongues Duel the Corn Whores a new opera by artist Trulee Hall (London, UK; Zabludowicz Center), Madame de Croissy in Poulenc's Dialogues of the Carmelites (OKCU), La Voix in Offenbach's Contes d'Hoffmann (OKCU), and Donna Ribalda in PDQ Bach's The Stoned Guest (OPERAtions).
Freddie also performs operatic drag, re-imagining classical opera and musical theatre repertoire through a queer lens. These performances challenge and blur the gender binary while celebrating queer identities. Freddie is a two time winner of Drag Wars NYC and have performed on countless stages, including New York City's legendary Stonewall Inn.
In January 2020, Freddie moved to London, UK with their partner and two imaginary dogs. They performed a leading role in a new opera by Trulee Hall and were selected as a winner for 'Alternative Cabaret' at Wilton's Music4All Festival (unfortunately cancelled due to COVID). Freddie's hobbies include: puppetry, crossfit, yoga, painting, and hunting online for fabulous vintage costumes.
