Soprano Ashley Marion Biehl is a native Seattleite, though she didn’t know it until she moved there from Wisconsin in 2012. In the summer of 2017, Ashley performed with Opera NEO as a Studio artist, where her "capricious, breezy soprano clearly defined Alinda, a cheerful gadfly in Isifile’s court" in Cavalli's Il Giasone. An intelligent and creative performer, she often seeks out unusual repertoire, which has led her to perform in Harry Partch’s King Oedipus with the University of Washington’s Partch Ensemble and Fauré’s Penelope with Vespertine Opera. While touring with NOISE as Olympia in The Tales of Hoffman, she wowed thousands of children with her "shimmering" coloratura and comedic timing. At OperaWorks as an Advanced Artist, she discovered her love of acting improv, and she continues to take improv classes and has developed an interest in comedy writing.
