Diana Soviero is one of the most recognized American opera singers of the twentieth century. More than merely a vocalist, Ms. Soviero was a singing actress who lived her roles intensely on the stage. As her lyric soprano voice blossomed into a spinto with vivid colors, Ms. Soviero became a compelling interpreter of the verismo repertoire. She created a gallery of unforgettable operatic portraits in performances at leading international opera houses including The Metropolitan Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, Vienna Staatsoper, Opéra national de Paris, Opéra de Paris Bastille, Hamburg Staatsoper, Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, Chicago Lyric Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Houston Grand Opera, and San Francisco Opera.
In the last decade, Ms. Soviero has dedicated herself to teaching singers with the same passion that characterized her singing and acting career. She teaches many of The Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artists, giving both private lessons in her Manhattan studio and master classes across the country with prestigious companies and festivals such as Glimmerglass Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Opéra Montréal, Opera Philadelphia, Palm Beach Opera, Michigan Opera Theatre, and Opera Tampa; institutes and conservatories such as Academy of Vocal Arts, Curtis Institute, El Conservatorio de Música de Puerto Rico, The VOICExperience with Sherrill Milnes, and The Israeli Institute; and universities throughout the United States, including the University of Hawaii (in conjunction with Hawaii Opera Theater), the University of Wisconsin, Université de Montréal, Lawrence University, and University of Missouri-Kansas City. In addition to her large private vocal studio, she is a member of the voice faculty at the Mannes School of Music. [read more...]
