Jessica Fishenfeld

New York native and recent Savannah, GA implant Jessica Fishenfeld juggles her opera and acting careers with shocking competence, while maintaining a vestige of a social life, usually consisting of extracurricular forms of singing, acting, creating, fitness, and ultimate frisbee. She is currently producing/featured in “Grateful: The Music of John Bucchino,” alongside Leslie Odan Jr., Stephen Schwartz, Ann Hampton Callaway, among other stage/TV stars, premiering online this December, and in April appeared in The State’s virtual revival of “Porcupine Racetrack,” produced by David Wain. She made her Off-Broadway debut this past February as Actor Three (portraying multiple characters within the 5-person cast) in the country-western musical farce DAS BARBECÜ, recently played Jenny Lind in the premiere NY staged reading of BARNUM'S BIRD at Circle in the Square, and made her New York City Opera debut as Leah in the World Premiere of STONEWALL, in which she "triumphed" with "clean coloratura" and "spunky personality." She is a 2021 Quarter-Finalist in the American Traditions Competition, and won a Semi-Finalist prize in the 2019 Lotte Lenya Competition. Other recent credits include co-starring in rock musical LOVESICK at National Sawdust, singing multiple concerts at Carnegie Hall as soloist, performing with international orchestras in St. Bart's, Xalapa, and Morelia, and appearing in several independent films. She frequents Front Porch Improv, and her newly-formed virtual sketch comedy troupe “Cold Cuts” produces online sketches to combat the prolific depression plaguing our country in current times.
