Within a year of these competitions, debuted with the Bavarian State Opera, the Vienna State Opera and the Hamburg State Opera as Zerbinetta in Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos. She made her Metropolitan Opera debut in the same role in 1987 with Jessye Norman, conducted by James Levine, and has continued in roles including Adele in Die Fledermaus, Cleopatra in Julius Caesar and Blondchen in Die Entführung aus dem. She has also performed leading roles to great acclaim at the Bavarian State Opera, La Scala, in Vienna and San Diego.

She’s appeared in opera and oratorio under Mistislav Rostropovich, Charles Dutoit, Leonard Slatkin and Pierre Boulez. As a recitalist Kilduff has appeared in numerous artist series in the United States and has presented master classes at universities and colleges. In the New England area she has appeared in Poulenc’s Gloria with the Chorus Pro Musica and was featured in 2002 in the Schocken-Gessner series in a recital with Brian Moll in Pickman Hall at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
