American soprano Francesca Aguado has earned praise from The Washington Post for her voice’s confident precision and articulation, and most recently by South Florida Classical Review for her vocal delivery’s “immediacy and intensity,” and a “dark and opulent tone.”
Last season she made several significant solo concert work debuts including Strauss’ 4 Last Songs and Mahler Symphony No. 4, Considering Matthew Shepherd, as well a role debut on the operatic stage as Mimi (La Boheme).
Other past credits include: Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia); Musetta (La Bohême), Mother (Amahl and the Night Visitors); Ma Joad (suite version of The Grapes of Wrath, accompanied by composer Ricky Ian Gordon); Dorabella (Così fan tutte); Dinah (Trouble in Tahiti); Maurya (Riders to the Sea); Zweite Dame (Die Zauberflöte).
Upcoming engagements for the 2022/2023 season include the title role of Carmen, Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), as well as various guest soloist appearances in concert and recital series (with another notable debut performing the soprano solo for the Brahms Requiem) throughout both the
United States as well as abroad in Italy and Austria.
