Carmen Giannattasio possesses the style, technique, range, vocal beauty and presence to number her among the rare breed of dramatic sopranos who excel in the greatest bel canto operas of Rossini, Donizetti and Bellini. Her stage presence has been compared to the great Italian film heroine Anna Magnani by the Telegraph, and declared “a magnificent Femme Fatale”, a “bright star” after her performance of Nedda at ROH by The Times. In 2011, she was the protagonist in Opera-Rara’s Gramophone Award-winning recording of Rossini’s Ermione. Carmen has a busy year ahead performing across the globe, including her debut at Wiener StaatsOper, and at La Scala in Falstaff, her return at Metropolitan with La Traviata alongside Placido Domingo, Verdi’s Requiem at Maggio Musicale Fiorentino under the baton of M.W.Chung.


Giannattasio’s unique talent is in high demand across the world this year. After the successful Tour with Teatro alla Scala in Seoul, Shanghai and Moscow, she has sung at Vatican’s Sala Nervi for a special concert in presence of his Holiness Pope Francesco. Carmen will have her debut at the Wiener StaatsOper in a new David’s McVicar production of Falstaff under the baton of Mehta, followed by another new production of Falstaff at Teatro alla Scala. So much expected is her return at Metropolitan Opera of New York in her last La Traviata alongside Placido Domingo.
