Karan Armstrong is an American operatic soprano who has had an active international career since the 1960s.

In 1966 Armstrong won the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions which led to her being engaged by the house as a comprimario singer. She made her debut at the Met on October 2, 1966 as one of the servants in Richard Strauss's Die Frau ohne Schatten under conductor Karl Boehm with Leonie Rysanek as the Empress and Christa Ludwig as the Dyer's Wife.

In 1974, Armstrong first appeared in Europe, as Micaëla in Carmen, at the Opéra du Rhin in Strasbourg. The following year, she created a great sensation with her performance of Salome at the same theatre.

Armstrong has sung in several operatic world premieres, including Gottfried von Einem's Jesu Hochzeit (as Death), Giuseppe Sinopoli's Lou Salomé, Luciano Berio's Un re in ascolto, York Höller's Maître et Marguerite and Siegfried Matthus's Desdemona und ihre Schwestern.
