A native of St. Paul Minnesota, soprano Sara Gartland premiered the role of Rose in Mark Campbell's and Kristin Kuster's A Thousand Acres as part of Des Moines Metro Opera's 50th Anniversary season in 2022, in what Opera Today called “a stunning turn,” following her raving success there as Lisa in Queen of Spades in 2021.

MS. GARTLAND IN REVIEW
“Sara Gartland was utter perfection in the title role, a performance on full throttle from first to last as she descended inexorably from infectious, hopeful girlish impetuosity to end up a pathetically defeated nonentity. Her singing was nothing less than radiant throughout. Ms. Gartland possesses a substantial lyric soprano of great beauty and rock solid technique that seems to know no bounds when it comes to alluring sheen, emotional connection, thrilling top notes, vibrant mid-range, floated pinaissimi, and well, any and all variation thereof. Moreover, her attractive presence and committed acting were all one could wish for this complex heroine. I would wager there is no one in the world singing this role better than Sara Gartland.”
