Canadian soprano Erin makes her eagerly awaited return to WNO after portraying Donna Anna in Don Giovanni in 2007. She has performed leading roles at many of the world’s greatest opera companies, including The Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, Opéra National de Paris, and the Vienna Staatsoper.
Of her performance of the
Financial Times said Erin “wields a soprano of radiance, pristine
beauty, and tingling top notices…she made us believe every word.”
Erin has run 2 marathons, 10 half-marathons, and countless 10ks and 5ks.
Hailing from Argentina, Marcelo
makes his WNO debut after engagements at the Royal Opera House, Covent
Garden, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Oper Stuttgart, Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, Hamburg
State Opera, State Opera Prague,
tenor studied at the Córdoba Conservatory and Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires, with
Renato Sassola. Other roles in his developing repertoire include Turridu
in Cavalleria Rusticana,
Maurizio in Adriana Lecouvreur,
and Calaf in Turandot.
Fun fact: If Marcelo could pick three opera characters to have dinner with, he says he’d discuss love, destiny, politics, songs, and poetry with Manrico (Il trovatore), Don Alvaro (La forza del destino), and Radames (Aida).
