DEBUT OF MEXICAN SOPRANO AT WIGMORE HALL IN LONDON
LONDON, United Kingdom, 6th January, 2017 - Mexican soprano Maria Katzarava will debut on 10th January at Wigmore Hall, considered one of the most important venues in the world for the quality of the performers who have been presented there.
Under the so-called Rosenblatt Recitals, the Mexican artist will complete a program that includes operatic duets with tenor Stefano La Colla on pieces such as 'Madama Butterfly', 'Manon Lescaut', 'Tosca' y 'La Bohème' (Puccini), 'Roméo et Juliette' (Gounod), 'Otello' (Verdi) y 'Andrea Chénier' (Giordano), with Simon Lepper at the piano.
The soprano, internationally recognised for her ‘young, fresh voice and wide tessitura (ABC) will perform a programme of French and Italian opera classics with a second half dedicated in its entirety to Giacomo Puccini.
It is noteworthy to mention that the soprano has already performed previously at the Royal Opera House with 'Roméo et Juliette' in the 2010-2011 season, and most recently captivated participants at the gala dinner held at Guildhall on 4th March, 2015 on occasion of the State Visit of Mexico´s President Enrique Peña Nieto to the United Kingdom.
By then, Maria Katzarava’s dynamics were generous and well executed and her phrasing was spontaneous and expressive. Her tone stood out both in the quartet and the septet, always measuring her strength and applying beautiful colours to her voice.
Tickets can be purchased at Wigmore Hall.
