The Voice Of: The Opera Singer | Eve Gigliotti & Karen Slack
In Part Ten of The Visceral Voice's new limited series, Christine and Kimberly listen to "The Voice Of: The Opera Singer."Mezzo-soprano Eve Gigliotti has won critical acclaim for her work in contemporary opera, including her portrayal as Ruth in the world premiere of Dark Sisters (Muhly/Karam), and Bess in the world premiere of Breaking the Waves (Mazzoli/Vavrek). Ms. Gigliotti has performed with San Francisco Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Seattle Symphony, LA Phil, Washington National Opera, Washington Concert Opera, Opera Philadelphia, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, among others. She is featured as Siegrune in both HD presentations of the LePage production of Die Walküre from The Metropolitan Opera, including the Grammy Award winning recording. The 2020/21 season held many exciting opportunities at The Metropolitan Opera. However, due to the cancelled season, Eve “adapted and pivoted”. In partnership with acclaimed producer Cath Brittan, she is currently developing the opera, No One Is Forgotten (Prestini & Shirey/Miller), whose first workshop will be presented at HERE this winter. She also starred in Alice in the Pandemic (Sosa/Jacobs), with White Snake Projects. Next season Ms. Gigliotti is thrilled to be returning to The Metropolitan Opera, and will continue on with her original projects including Untitled: Inspired by Film Stills, an installation opera inspired by the iconic series of Cindy Sherman. Eve lives in Brooklyn with her two favorite people. Follower her on Instagram here.
