Tamara Wilson has enjoyed great success in recent seasons with roles including Aida (Metropolitan Opera New York, Arena di Verona, Washington National Opera), Ariadne (Teatro alla Scala Mailand), Leonora (Lyric Opera of Chicago, Gran Theatre del Liceu Barcelona) and Norma (Gran Teatre del Liceu Barcelona). After making her triumphant debut in Germany at Oper Frankfurt with concert performances of Wagner‘s Die Feen / The Fairies and a wonderful portrayal of the Kaiserin in Die Frau ohne Schatten (both available on CD - OehmsClassics), this wonderful soprano is back to sing Elisabeth de Valois in Don Carlo. This prize winning American soprano studied at the University of Cincinnati and started her career as a member of Houston Grand Opera‘s Studio. Tamara Wilson appears regularly at leading international opera houses and won the 2016 Richard Tucker Award. Her repertoire encompasses almost all the great Verdi, Mozart and Strauss roles: she has sung Lucrezia Contarini (I due Foscari), Desdemona (Otello), Amelia (Un ballo in maschera), Konstanze (Die Entführung aus dem Serail), Chrysothemis (Elektra) as well as Rosalinde (Die Fledermaus) and Lady Billows (Albert Herring). She is currently singing Amelia (Un ballo in maschera) at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. This season she makes her debut at Santa Fe Opera as Isolde and sings Aida at the Canadian Opera Company in Toronto and Houston Grand Opera and goes on tour in Japan with the International Bach Academy Stuttgart with Helmuth Rilling.
