Shenson Chamber Music Concert: Nadine Sierra

Artistic Director: Gilan Tocco Corn

Praised for her vocal beauty, seamless technique, and abundant musicality, soprano Nadine Sierra is being hailed as one of the most promising emerging talents in the opera world today. The youngest winner of both the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and the Marilyn Horne Foundation Vocal Competition, she is already making a name for herself through her performances with top opera companies and symphony orchestras around the world.

In the 2015–2016 season, Sierra debuts at the Opéra National de Paris, Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, and Berlin Staatsoper, with performances in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, as Gilda in Rigoletto, and as Amor in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice. Other highlights include Pamina in Die Zauberflöte at the San Francisco Opera, the title role of Lucia di Lammermoor, and as Tytania in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Valencia’s Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia.

On the concert stage, the soprano performs recitals in D.C. and Cincinnati, and has appeared at venues ranging from Carnegie’s Weill Hall to the U.S. Supreme Court.
