Hailed by The New York Times for her "extraordinary virtuosity and elegance" and declared a "clear showstopper" by Boston Classical Review, the young American soprano Angela Vallone is currently part of the Ensemble at Oper Frankfurt.
Directly upon graduation from The Juilliard School, Angela Vallone appeared as Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro at Teatro Municipal de Santiago, and at Oper Frankfurt as Belinda in Dido and Aeneas, Frida in Enrico, Yvette in Die Passagierin, and Second Niece in Peter Grimes. At Juilliard, to which she was awarded a full scholarship, Angela appeared as the eponymous heroine in Cavalli’s La Calisto; as Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro; and as the 1st Greek Woman in Gluck’s Iphigénie en Aulide, co-produced by the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program and the Juilliard School—a performance that prompted Opera News to single out her "supple, bell-like soprano" as "a particular delight."
A champion of new music as well, Ms Vallone was the soloist for Oliver Knussen’s Requiem: Songs for Sue with Juilliard’s AXIOM New Music Ensemble, conducted by Jeffrey Milarsky.
Angela Vallone has also performed the role of Servilia in La clemenza di Tito at the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow, conducted by Stefano Montanari.
Her competition accolades include, among others, winning First Prize in the Gerda Lissner Foundation International Vocal Competition in New York City.
In Ms. Vallone's upcoming second season in Frankfurt she will sing performances of Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro and Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, among others.
